Tweets of the Week: Bandwagons, Farmers Markets & Potholes
Via @colefarrell: “Walking downtown, I heard an older man refer to the farmers market as ‘that weekly veggie festival.’ I’m into it.”
About two thousand onlookers attended as Pence, Ballard, and General Daniel B. Allyn—who earlier this month became the 20th commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command—addressed the fallen, surveyed the present, and glanced at the future. “I wonder how many times that scenario has played out—the last hug, the last kiss before heading off to war,” says Mayor Ballard. “Sometimes, though, it really is the last war, the last kiss. And that is why we are here today.”
UPDATE, Feb. 17, 2013: Private Timothy McCormick’s colleague, 22-year-old specialist Cody Medley, has also died as a result of severe injuries sustained in the Feb. 16 car-ambulance accident downtown that claimed McCormick’s life. A tribute video celebrating their lives was posted to Facebook here.
