I wanted to clear up something about a recent comment on my blog today in case anyone misunderstood my description of the Edmonds Fourth of July parade and my reference to “Stormtroopers”. “Storm Troopers” were Nazis. “Stormtroopers” are from Star Wars. In my column this week I was referring to people at our local parade who dress up like Stormtroopers from Star Wars. They call themselves the 501st Legion: http://www.501st.com/
For the record, my seven year old stood up and took his hat off for every veteran that passed in the Edmonds Fourth of July parade, and I didn’t have to remind him once.
