Take in the high spirits which usually accompany graduation day, add a dose of Friday night plus a generous pinch of local politics and we’re off and running – it’s Friday Night in the 24/680!
Reports of celebrating up and down our valleys as recently commissioned members of the Class of 2018 shed the hallowed halls of high school and take their first steps as relatively free men and women. So far, a few bizarre sightings of costumed revelers (does anyone streak any more? No?) and reports of solemn, bookish discussions about world affairs taking place in houses and places of contemplation.
Fine. Just everyone be good to one another, don’t give the police people a bad time and don’t get hurt, okay? Pinkie Promise? Cool.
And what would that Friday Night, pre-Election Day window be without some electioneering by locals with a vested interest in an upcoming local ballot measure? We thought the masks were a nice touch – guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens June 5.
