Just a year ago, we believed that the annual Funk Parade along U Street was a reason to live in the Nation’s Capital.  What a simple, innocent world we lived in then, when those of us in urban areas were clueless about the post-election pall about to fall upon the land.  But if you want to reclaim your sense of what life could be like if people of good will were to come together in a spirit of joy, yesterday’s Funk Parade — despite the rain and gloomy weather — could do it.  Once again on Chocolate City’s “Black Broadway” families came together to share in the funk, and it was wonderful.
