I am a dedicated Democrat, but one has to have some compassion for the Republicans who scheduled their convention in Florida during hurricane season ("Short session but high spirits," Aug. 28). In my circle, the jokes are flying. If the Republicans are that daring, what other chances would they take with our lives if they were in power? Are they gamblers or conservative thinkers? Why did they choose Florida at this time of the year? One of my friends reminded me that in September 2005 the Rev. Pat Robertson and other conservative religious leaders claimed that hurricane Katrina "was sent by God as an omen or a punishment for America's alleged sins.

Nature blessed the Catonsville Fourth of July parade with an exquisite, blue sky and, as always, an enthusiastic, patriotic crowd. I want to thank the Catonsville Celebrations Committee for granting me the privilege of being this year's grand marshal. Thanks also to the people of Catonsville for watching, cheering, and waving United States flags along the two-mile parade route. What a good time it was — smiling and waving to family, friends, business buddies and the crowd while riding in a sleek, classic 1975 Cadillac Eldorado convertible!

In America, the land of strongly held opinions, a whiff of controversy about the proper way to celebrate Independence Day seems positively patriotic. So it was in Bel Air. Complaints of animal cruelty didn't stop the frog-hopping contest or turtle race at Shamrock Park on Friday morning, though organizers said that the number of contestants - 144 frogs and 105 turtles - was down from last year. A (comparatively) speedy turtle named Squirt won a trophy on behalf of 14-year-old Jessica Douglass of Whiteford, who has been coming to the derby for as long as she can remember.

When De'ontae Smith was fatally stabbed and two friends were injured three blocks from the route of the Ravens' Super Bowl victory parade, police initially said the celebration was unrelated to the violence. As it turned out, the teen had cut school to cheer on the team. Officials have since said they didn't know enough at the time to conclusively link the events. The Baltimore Sun wanted to know: How were various city agencies talking about the stabbing in the minutes and hours after it took place?

PARADES can be fun-filled, feel-good, emotionally stirring nation-celebrating events. No doubt Saturday's parade in Washington had, and today's in New York City will have, a goodly portion of all these ingredients.Unfortunately for this lover of parades, the Desert Storm fetes have a disappointing side, too. As I listen to these particular parade drums, I hear the sound of heavy lifting, of labored enthusiasm, of confusion over the rationale for the Iraq war, of uneasiness over what exactly the victory consisted of.I do not hear the spontaneous joy and revelry of a great nation celebrating a grand success.
