The Orange Order will be marching in support of the Union in Edinburgh tomorrow.

The Orange Order of Scotland will be marching through Edinburgh on Saturday, five days before Scotland's independence referendum. It is expected to be the largest Orange parade in Scotland since 1951. Two thousand marchers from Northern Ireland are expected to join over ten thousand Scottish Orangemen on a route through the city center along The Royal Mile.

I was going to say something snarky about the march until I saw the photo of twelve-year-old Kellsie Lynch bleeding from her forehead. She was hit in the face by a flying bottle (obvious trigger warning for that link) when a fight broke out at the end of the Orange Order's traditional July march through Glasgow.

Now I'm not saying anything else except that I hope security's better Saturday and no one gets hurt.
