    We'll be back soon, there will be more of us, and next time we won't be dropping leaflets.

    If I catch someone lighting off fireworks here in Boulder I'mma slap em upside the head. Even most of the organized displays have been cancelled this year.

    2 guys locally were hospitalized after making a gigantic pile of fireworks... lighting a fuse and not running fast enough.

    We've got about 3-5 buildings burning down per week around here due to the drought and the new fireworks law...Too many idjucts are lighting off things that go *BOOM* near buildings...homes, a church, apartment buildings.

    And not to go all PO up in hurr, but our governor is turning a blind eye, citing increased state revenue (from the sale of fireworks) and otherwise turning a blind eye to all the burning buildings in the state.

    Both of my dogs agree with you. I tried to take them out for their evening walk a few minutes ago. The first rumblings of fireworks were in the air. The poodle refused to even step outside the front door; the chihuahua made it to the front walk, quickly voided his bladder and then refused to go any further..
    I try to be perfectly civil, until someone really pisses me off.
