God speaks to the fundamentalists


RIVERFRONT PARK, NASHVILLE, TN SUNDAY, FEB 8TH

AREA FLOODING FORCES KKK RECRUITMENT RALLY POSTPONEMENT.

Nearly 30 minutes after yesterday's Ku Klux Klan recruitment rally was scheduled to start at 9am in downtown Nashville's riverfront park, Sara Able was the only hooded person to show up. The local resident isn't a white supremacist; she just thought her fellow anti-hate protestors would get a kick from her flowery patterned sheet robe and pillowcase hood.

"I just wanted to make light of the situation, and I think women can identify with this," Able said as she tugged on the printed bedding.

Tim Bradley, grand dragon of the KKK's National Knights of Tennessee, said about 60 members met at riverfront park at 5am yesterday to prepare for the rally and hang fliers (posssibly a new term for African-Americans?) but cancelled the event when they saw that part of the riverfront area was flooded by recent rainfall.

"We wanted to have it down below, right by the river, but I guess God has a better plan. We've rescheduled for early April, hopefully, the weather will cooperate," said Bradley. He estimated that about 150 KKK members would have shown up - most wearing robes and carrying Confederate battle flags.

More than 225 anti-Klan protestors from the midstate, Knoxville, Chattanooga, and parts of north Georgia began gathering around the park at 9am yesterday, but no KKK members were there. This observer suspects it was a bit more than the floods that ended the rally. As for the meeting in early April, even the agnostics are praying for a plague of locusts.
