I honestly don't see how a sparkler being lit in my street is going to start a wildfire, compared to a large military installation setting off industrial-sized fireworks, but whatever.
so... you are the guy who keeps calling in on me! ,

Yeah, good thing it's too flippin' hot to sleep with the windows open, because my neighborhood sounds like a war zone on the 4th. Doubtful that this year will be any different. We have rules, simply to live here, and they're not followed.....pshhhhhhh, why should some county ordinance matter?
