Editorial: Parade accident doesn't mean Shriners should be banned
The accident during the Water Carnival parade Sunday involving a Shriner go-cart was unfortunate, but it doesn't mean Shriners should be banned from future parades.
The El Zagel Shrine has 12 units in North Dakota and Minnesota that each specialize in a different function for parades. Detroit Lakes has a color guard, for example.
Other units specialize as Vikings, Keystone Kops or clowns.
