    HA! I was surprised to see this on Towleroad. To make it a little more relevant to this site, I’ve spotted the gay club in the background.

    The circled building in the photo was an after-hours gay bar called Fielden’s from the mid-70s until earlier this year.

    Even if he had made it past the traffic light, there’s no way Rudolph or his handles would survive the powerlines just 10 more feet down the parade route.

    Haha that was awesome. Why did they not check the clearances on the parade route beforehand? Oh well ūüėÄ

    “Oh, the humanity! I can’t talk, ladies and gentlemen. It’s just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage. This is the worst thing I’ve ever witnessed.”

    Yes, oh, the humanity. I can’t help but feel sorry for Rudolph. And the guy who has to patch the hole.

    Well it is Richmond where state/local law says, “It is illegal for a woman to drive a car up Main Street unless her husband is walking in front of the car waving a red flag.”

    @Perry I’m glad someone else thought the same thing.
