Kansas City's St. Patrick's Day Parade
Around 2:30 p.m. the first parade was over and another began. More than a dozen mechanized street sweepers from American Sweeping Inc. worked their way north on Grand, clearing the discarded and blowing cans, bottles, bags and miles of silly string, sucking up debris in figure eights, avoiding one another with the grace of dancers. Within an hour, you couldn't even tell a party had happened.
