I don't like Christmas, I don't like publically funded circuses and I don't like London. While reading this article, keep in mind the Santa Claus parade here will once again take place in the evening, beginning at 6:30pm, in the dark. Maybe the colossal waste of electricity emanating from the trees in Victoria Park will illuminate the usually dark and windy haven for panhandlers, punks and gangs:
London police officers and volunteers cleaning up downtown for Saturday's Santa Claus parade whitewashed two murals by a London artist.No doubt it would be cheaper for taxpayers if the city commissioned James Kirkpatrick to paint new murals glorifying Santa Claus and the JLC. In addition, council should offer taxpayer funded art appreciation classes to all police officers. It is important that the officers of the law be able to see the difference between state approved, vs. non-state approved creativity.
