On my way to the office this morning, I heard that Memorial Day parades throughout the tristate area had been canceled because of the rain. Of course I understand that with rain and inclement weather outdoor activities might need to change.But what I was thinking is the irony of canceling the MEMORIAL observance.  After all, …
