Default Re: Ban New Years fireworks?

I think that those of us who grew up outside the state can't believe the danger & pollution that goes on in the name of "culture".

I think that those of us who grew up here are too close to the problem ("tradition", "family") to recognize the inconsistency.

Interesting that support of fireworks generally goes along age & gender lines (younger males) and that few, if any, community leaders or public figures (politicians or celebrities) are in favor of them.

Looks like this problem goes in the same category as marijuana, cockfighting, and shoplifting. Oh, but wait, those don't wake me up in the middle of the night, scare the crap out of me, or make it hard for me to breathe...
