    Scotland finds an answer to shouting preacher

    Although speaking out is welcome in Scotland, shoppers in St Andrews were more than a little fed-up to find themselves almost deafened by a preacher with a very loud microphone. As people tried to buy their groceries or drink a coffee in the precious, late summer sunshine, they were swamped with yelling telling them they were all sinners, were going to hell and furthemore, gays were ruining the Scottish economy.

    There was nothing they could do though, because nobody can compete with a loud person and a microphone turned up to full volume.

    Ah. Except in Scotland, of course. Watch the bagpipe player at the link come nonchalantly wandering around, easily drown out the yelling and receive a cheer from all the relieved shoppers at the same time.

    At the same time this story was breaking, the BBC was running a story about Scottish piper Daniel Laidlaw, deceased. I read it and wondered about linking it here, but I think I will. Pipers in Scotland have such a long and brave history - deservedly so - and though this (then) 40-year-old piper leading young men 'over the top' in WW1 and getting wounded is nothing to smile about, the fact he survived, is.

    Also that his family is still so proud of him. There's many years and very different circumstances between Daniel and the young man in a T-shirt today, playing pipes in a shopping plaza. But there's something that links them too, both stepping up when no-one else did, armed only with bagpipes. That makes me smile.

    Cool

    Just sent this story to a couple of friends who have interests in all things Scottish/bagpipes on Facebook!
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
