Sunday’s news items [Parade details; parade from the 60s; food serving inspections; chickenhawks & more] – May 27, 2018

so sad

OPINION: Chickenhawk clatter | The celebration of Memorial Day is not a time for grandstanding nor political commentary. It is a time for solemn remembrance of those who died in military service of the nation. These words are from this Savannah Morning News writer’s column – On Memorial Day, a tribute to sacrificewhich is an elegant tribute to those who served and died.

Saber-rattling, jingoistic, racist, xenophobic ramblings are trademarks of snarky, second generation silver-spooned screamers who’ve never slept on faraway ground nor had a finger on a trigger. They’ve never stood a formation to say farewell to brothers or sisters who won’t come home.

en español: OPINIÓN: Choque de Chickenhawk | La celebración del Día de los Caídos no es un momento para la admiración ni el comentario político. Es un momento para el recuerdo solemne de aquellos que murieron en el servicio militar de la nación. Estas palabras son de esta columna del escritor Savannah Morning News – En Memorial Day, un tributo al sacrificio – que es un elegante tributo a aquellos que sirvieron y murieron. Las alborotaduras xenófobas, racistas, xenófobas y de sable son marcas registradas de snarky, ladrones de cuchara de plata de segunda generación que nunca han dormido en tierras lejanas ni tienen un dedo en el gatillo. Nunca han formado una formación para despedirse de hermanos o hermanas que no volverán a casa.
