Quote of the Day: Send in the Clones?

by Robert Farago

Sometimes, I come across a quote that is, in or itself, perfect. Like this one from 11alive.com, re: the theft of seven Shriners parade cars.

What these burglars have done is really set the organization back in terms of our parades. Our next parade would have been the College Park Parade, in College Park. And without our cars, it’s just real difficult. So me and the other members of the Temple, we’re going to have to come up with a plan and see what we can do to try to put ourselves back in the parades…. The Temple has clowns. But if you didn’t have the mini-cars, I mean, to me, it’s not a parade.

Anyone with coulrophobia, a kind heart or both can send your donations to Nabbar Temple Motor Unit, 330 Auburn Ave., Atlanta, GA 30312. Meanwhile and in any case, click here for my favorite Shriners’ Mini car site.

    It is hard to get lower than that.

    Is there truly a second-hand market for these things? A black market? China?

    I'll bet it will turn out that a rival Shrine's guys copped the cars in the manner of high school rivals stealing each others' mascots. They will probably show up on the roof of City Hall or someplace like that.

    A 33rd degree felony, to say the least.
