I would like for someone to explain to me why, with our extremely hot temperatures and dangerously dry conditions, our cities handed out permits, allowing the sale by dozens of vendors of any kind of fireworks. There are those people who claim that the fireworks sold are harmless but, as we know, it takes only one spark to ignite a firestorm. A safe and sane Fourth of July should mean leaving the beautiful displays of fireworks to the professionals and not mean putting our lives and property in danger while in the wrong hands.
