Letter: It all comes down to profit



All of you are wasting your time and breath complaining about fireworks. The city and businesses make money off of them, and they don’t care about your misery. As long as it’s not their front yard, they don’t care.

Fireworks would be allowed all year long if it wasn’t against some laws. They won’t settle on one day, the Fourth; it extends beyond that. So what if things catch on fire, people get hurt, animals tremble, people can’t sleep who work the next day and vets feel like they are back in a war zone; it doesn’t matter to those who are making money — the fireworks are music to their ears.
