As I write this, the parade is still on, in spite of a rainy forecast.
As I write this, downtown Scranton is being cleaned up, flags hung, potholes filled.
I get that. Parade Day is a huge economic engine for the troubled city. Put your best foot forward. Show visitors a clean city. With any luck, we'll get them to come back.
Drunken louts excluded, it's doubtful they'll see a city as nice on the return trip, and that makes me sad.
If we can clean up a city for Parade Day, there's no reason we can't do it for the other 364.
