Long Weekend Go Boom

Yay long weekend!  That special time when a few idiots, fascinated by loud noises and shiny lights, can hold an entire neighbourhood hostage with their chintzy fireworks displays.  I don't hate fireworks, I just hate them in my back yard.  Growing up, a fireworks display was something you traveled to and it was put on with some sort of professionalism.  Now, anybody can buy fireworks and set them off indiscriminately in any location.

I also seem to remember that selling fireworks was illegal back when I was a kid.  When did that change?  Why does our nanny state stop short on this one item?  I have to wear a helmet, gloves, and knee pads just to change a light bulb but yah sure here are some explosive charges you can set off in your back yard with your kids!

Bah.
