In college, the marching band's storage room was directly beneath my dorm window.

On football days, they were my unwelcome weekend alarm clock.

Thunderboy's marching band leader is definitely a dictator. Or something beginning with dic....

He's definitely compensating for something, and wears a school varsity jacket even though he did not attend the school.

I wonder how many 15 year olds 30 years ago knew what a proto-fascist was?

If I had a teenage kid, and he/she knew what a proto-fascist was, I think I'd take him/her to the vet and have him/her put down.
I had (have actually) a wicked smart friend whose hippie parents kept him and by extension me up to speed on The Man and his underlings... I was overly-aware.

No contest. Marching band is way more of a paramilitary organization than Boy Scouts is. At least in my experience with my kids.
