Letter to the Editor: Save the Hummers

For years now, Middletown has demonstrated the fine American tradition of satire and comical irreverence toward authority.

Their annual gala of the Hummers Parade, a takeoff from the Philadelphia Mummers Parade, has called attention to pertinent social issues. That some residents do not want to see the depiction of some unpleasant truths, such as caged immigrants, is no excuse for trampling on the most important right guaranteed by our Constitution: free speech!

Any unlawful restrictions concocted by the city are sure to face successful legal challenges, just wasting taxpayer money.

If you don’t want to see it, stay home. Let the marchers march, in the finest American spirit!

Ken Abraham
