Positive Reception for Veterans for Peace Float in Twinkle Light Parade


From Terry Riley:
I was on the Veterans for Peace pro-soldier, anti-war float in this Saturday's Albuquerque Twinkle Light Parade. The reception was FANTASTIC. Only three or four people along the route said anything negative. The rest were very supportive and many thanked us directly for the display. Whole families cheered us as we passed them. Just before the parade started somebody said he hoped that nobody took offense to our float.  He was so wrong on that count. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Here are a couple photos of the float. (Click images for larger versions.)
