KPLR-11 is reporting at least 69 incidents at Saturday's Mardi Gras Parade. Of those 69, a whopping 66 were for minors in possession of alcohol -- that's a whole lot of kids who didn't know you have to hide the cup when the cops walk by.

Of the remaining three ordinance violations, only one was for the perennial problem of public urination. Oh, Lone Tinkler -- you really couldn't find a Port-A-Potty? As the children's book notes, everyone pees, but everyone else managed to pee in an appropriate place.
