Great show as always yet I don't understand why the two people in the picture couldn't sit down likeRead More everyone around them. I was sitting right behind them and it was distracting and rude. Despite our requests and the fact that there was plenty of room to sit. I guess there is always somebody who thinks they are the only one's there.
Don't lose control and blow off any fingers this year.

Again: Apples & Oranges. Your "bicycle" argument is (again) not relevant to theRead More discussion. Try another rant. What about the old stand-by: Marijuana and Alcohol?

Rich, get your facts straight. Start with the definition of 'rant'. 'To speak or write in an angryRead More or violent manner'. If anything is a rant, many of your comments are, such as "You can't handle the truth!" a rant from 'A Few Good Men". Let's have some original rants at least. The discussion is injuries and fireworks on the 4th of July holiday period, correct? Well, injuries on the 4th also come from other sources besides fireworks, and one of those sources is bicycles. You can't seem to accept that 3 times more injuries are caused by bicycles than fireworks on the 4th, yet no one gets in a tizzy over that fact. Why the hoopla by the author over firework injuries? They are news worthy. How news worthy is it if someone like a weatherman loses an eye while riding a bicycle, perhaps running into a tree branch? Some may even regard such an accident on a bike as being 'inept'. However, have him lose an eye from a fireworks accident, whatever the circumstances, it is national news. Sure, fireworks can be dangerous if used incorrectly, but, if used incorrectly, so are a lot of other activities that we enjoy, are we going to outlaw them as well??? Again, be careful riding that bike.

Do you get drunk when you set your fireworks off? That would be a violation of the new law. IRead More know figures lie and liars figure, but statistics show that the majority of people at fireworks parties drink intoxicants. How may bike riders drink intoxicants before riding? Here's another one: "The truth hurts." You can't compare the too. It is a dangerous law which does not protect and is not enforced. The supposed "law makers" behind this money-driven blood-law knew it would hurt many Michigan residents. Here's one more: “Money talks” which is shameful in this case. IMO, 90% of the population (and animals world) would prefer to see fireworks only in the hands of professionals (with proper safety precautions), like at “Dearborn Homecoming .” I am hoping to see this law rescinded with those greedy “law-makers” who pushed for it, voted out. Have you heard of any appearance tickets issued or arrests made regarding violations over the last month? There should have been many. If your police chief elects to relax enforcement, vote the mayor and council out, too. They are responsible for him.

Alcohol is is probably the most dangerous and damaging drug. Around 35,000 Americans are killed inRead More alcohol related auto accidents every year. About 88,000 die when you add alcohol related diseases. Countless lives and families are destroyed. Personally, my childhood memories are nothing but fear and embarrassment from having a drunk parent. So it should never be taken lightly or promoted. If you do drink, please do so extremely carefully, responsibly, and consider what your actions do to people around you.

While this looks fun and enticing to adults - remember it also looks attractive to teens andRead More underage youth. Promoting and glamorizing alcohol consumption at family friendly events and occasions like the 4th of July can send the wrong message to youth. We need to model the behavior we want our youth to mimic. Family friendly and alcohol free drinks are just as fun and pretty. Let's promote and model healthy choices for our teens.

It is good to have a list of these dangerous toys. Why are toys with lead or harmful chemicalsRead More allowed to be sold?
