What were those silly twits thinking when they allowed fireworks to be sold in mid-June and expected people to save them until the third and fourth of July to set them off? These must be the same folks who believe in unicorns, Smurfs and fairies.
Our neighborhood has had fireworks going off every day and night since the stands opened. I think they should be banned altogether as most communities have done.
The majority of the accidents from fireworks happen to children. We put helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads on them to ride a bike, but casually allow them to play with explosives.
The adults making the rules governing fireworks need to get a grasp on reality. Clarisse Sutherland, Sioux City
