The “Inman Park Internecion” is the gift that keeps on giving. Not content to take the abuse heaped upon them by Mary Grabar yesterday, the Dancing Flowers for Peace
fight back respond:
Our petals wilted when we read the descriptions of some of our buds who participated in the Inman Park parade. Grizzled? Girth-widened? Didn’t Grabar’s mother teach her that it’s not good manners to call other people names? And why did she especially pick on narcissuses — there aren’t any in our group, but they would be warmly welcomed, just like any other flower.
We ask that Grabar consider picking a weed or two out of her attitude about people who openly parade their politics. Isn’t that really much more engaging than root-bound podium thumping? And, as Johnny Appleseed might have said: “There is nothing more delightful than planting the seeds of free speech on a sunny day!”
We think that “doing something for others or for the community” is a perfect definition of political action. To grow outside yourself, yes!
