Either that, or they just kept moving the holiday around the calendar because they were more fluid about these dates, until they finally settled for October. And I have no idea where they got the "bub" thing. I'm surprised Wolverine never said, "Eh?" And I wonder if Wolverine really pronounces "about" like it's "a-boat."

We do have some mounted police here in the USA, but only in a few cities like New York and Washington DC. I think Philadelphia has them as well.

No, I think the mounted police just do stuff like parking tickets, crowd control, and traffic. I think Los Angeles has them as well. I saw mounted police outside of the courthouse during the OJ Simpson trial verdict. Cops in police cruisers are the ones who do patrolling.

I always thought it was for the elevation. You see crowds better from above their heads.

if that is all that it would take to get high, I'd mount some horses myself

And yes, I think sitting on horseback gives them a better line of sight for crowd control.
