Since we’re on this whole -a-palooza theme, going on right now in Chicago is Kidzapalooza. Happily already planned for next year in the Los Angeles area is the same thing with a whole ‘nuther fun lineup of artists. Mark your calendars!

What is Kidzapalooza? It calls itself “the family friendly section of the Lollapalooza Festival“. This is the perfectly sensible Kidzapalooza mission:

To expose children to messages of kindness, happiness, respect and self-discovery through a concert/festival that their parents are not only comfortable with, but will enjoy as much as their kidz.

I’m nowhere near Chicago’s Grant Park right now, but if you can find Tor Hyams and Perry Farrell, give them a great big hug of thanks just for the idea alone.

Then go write your favorite congressperson, and demand a bill requiring all politicians to hang out at the next Kidzapalooza. Come on, agree with me: politicians need messages of kindness and happiness, too.
