The Bowie Blade-News published several letters from readers last week criticizing the length, focus and some of the participants of Bowie's 2010 Memorial Day Parade, and Bowie Mayor G. Fred Robinson responded this week with a letter of his own. Mayor Robinson took responsibility for the parade's outcome, he apologized to the community, and he promised to make any changes necessary to prevent future Memorial Day parades from turning into political rallies. Mayor Robinson also thanked the many volunteers and city workers who helped with the parade.
