I’ve just arrived at work, and already I can tell it’s going to be a strange day. On my way to work, I passed thirty or forty men dressed in camouflage, carrying assault rifles, walking down W.O. Ezell Blvd., closely followed by an unarmored personnel carrier. (I presume that either this was some sort of training exercise or downtown Spartanburg is about to be attacked).
Later, as I was on Daniel Morgan, I passed a funnel cake stand and a cotton candy stand, both of which were being set up in a parking lot to my right. It looked like there were rides and other food stands being set up as well.
Perhaps that platoon I passed on W.O. Ezell is moving in to prevent Spartanburg’s Spring Fling Weekend. I’ve got to go warn them! We’ll talk later.
