Don't be alarmed by gunfire downtown at lunchtime

It's just our Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company doing their annual procession.

Like this. Oh, and they might shoot off a cannon or two.

If all the agents are playing dress up soldier and marching through Boston?

"Invincible In Peace, invisible in War" - James Michael Curley (still a tax base destroying thief, racist and homophobe), on the Ancients.

Don't take any clients to a bar anywhere between Quincy Market and the State House today, you won't be able to close the deal with all the 55 to 70 year olds guys getting hammered talking about the new golf course in Sarasota they just played and the restaurant in Sanibel where they are last weekend.

It's all in good fun. And the canons are really cool. No projectiles - but they do shoot a big flame out the front.

And ya gotta love the bearskin hats.

When will our politicians take a stand against weapons of war being fired on our streets?

The glorification of violence and warfare as part of racist colonial traditions shouldn't be celebrated any more than the confederacy in the south.

It's bad enough we have to put up with amphibious assault craft driving tourists around the city all day maliciously quacking at innocent bystanders.
