I wasn’t all that upset about the water-cannon salute that greeted the team when they landed Monday.
Yeah, the optics are really bad. I’ll grant you that. But the city’s water-emergency ended two days before and I gotta believe no lives were in jeopardy because the water was being used to greet the team as they landed, rather than being available to put out fires.
What gets my goat is the timing of the parade. Who schedules a parade for afternoon rush hour?
To me, that’s something to get worked up about. Why not have the parade in the evening? That way, less traffic would be blocked and presumably more people could come out to take part, since most Londoners work during the day.
Thoughts? If it’s worth doing, isn’t it worth doing right?
