  •  I didn't call, either. (0+ / 0-)

    Prior experience has taught me that the police just don't show up for fireworks, even though damned near everything, except sparklers, is illegal in my state.  People have to drive two hours to get to a legal fireworks vendor, but they still manage to have enough of the stuff to make me miserable for weeks.

      This is Ohio -- (Giant Eagle* I'm looking at you) -- where fireworks are supposed to be illegal.

      And it's not just poor folks -- the rich Republicans around me were firing off stuff that was as loud as the show down in the park.

      We've been feeding the nervous Sheltie ACE every couple of hours, and he's still shaking, but there is a limit to how much we can give him.

      I used to love fireworks...I guess the best I can hope for is that one of the local fools gets himself lit up. I figure someone is going to have to get hurt before they stop this nonsense.

      *And Target, Meijers, and Kmart...

      •  How can they sell it (0+ / 0-)

        if it's illegal?  Even so, if they didn't sell it, people would drive to Indiana or somewhere else and load up their vehicles with the crap.  Most folks around here go to Missouri or Wisconsin, an hour and a half south or north.
