At the annual N.C. Fourth of July Parade in Southport last Friday, a cheering section of sorts formed in front of Southport Baptist Church, where a master of ceremonies was stationed to describe each parade entry.
Every time a car, band or float passed by the church, the M.C. would describe the person or the organization represented, and, every time, a group of people behind me would let out “whoops” and “whoos” for them—whether they knew who the people were or not.
M.C.: “The mayor of Anytown, U.S.A.!”
