Can’t help but wonder

I enjoy the Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day parade, where kisses and flowers are liberally distributed, and hefty cabbages, potatoes, onions and carrots are tossed. Fun stuff; especially when there’s plenty of great weather and tasty beverages for all.

Now, I don’t want to stir up trouble, but I’m wondering: how come we haven’t heard anything about skyrocketing insurance costs for the St Patrick’s parade, whose vegetable throws are several times heavier than Zulu’s hollowed-out coconuts? As my 1-year old daughter and I dodged flying cabbages and dense tubers, this crossed my mind.

    When I lived on Magazine Street, I once lost 16 window panes during the parade, thanks to errant vegetables thrown by sodden sots. Guess who replaced them all by himself, learning, in the process, the many ways that glazers’ points can ruin a finger? Can I claim material and emotional damages retroactively?
