“Links of the Day” follows some pictures of long-ago Memorial Days in Rochester.

Memorial Day Parade, 1930

Civil War Veterans Marching in 1919

Memorial Day Gathering, Washington Square Park 1909

Links of the Day:

– Beware of creepy men in parks! Because any man sitting on a bench drinking coffee with kids around is clearly a pedophile.

– This is bizarre. An Albany Times Union editor thinks police conducted a prostitution raid on his wife’s spa because of articles the paper wrote. The story involves a detective who stripped naked for a massage, too.

– Tissue Alert! A young Central New York with terminal cancer had one final request.

– That guitar man by the Inner Loop is playing a Guns N’ Roses tune.

– Ithaca’s mayor gave up his parking space for public space!

    Re: “Beware of creepy men in parks”

    As a father of two small kids who worked at home, I often took my son and daughter to local parks at lunchtime. It was very, very clear to me that the mothers who were there with their kids instantly assumed I was some sort of creep, until they noticed I had two kids with me. In one instance, I had a woman come up and demand that I leave until I could “prove I had a child” with me.

    Honestly, some people are simply too paranoid to be allowed to have children.
