Stunningly bad fireworks advice

I assume you are weary of common-sense counsel by now.

What do they take you for?

So, for a change, let's hear some insanely bad advice.

“The one sure way to tell if your M-80 is a dud after lighting it is to hold it up to your ear to see if you can hear the fuse hissing.”

Some people can’t handle the truth

And the truth is not everyone can be trusted to follow directions.

Helicopter an unwelcome presence

A friend says a helicopter hovering over the park during the fireworks in downtown Spokane Wednesday night got to be really annoying.

He said he likes a moment of quiet between the colorful explosions. You know, for dramatic tension. But with the chopper overhead, silence was never part of the spectacle.

I’d ask for a show of hands

But I don't want to call attention to those with missing fingers.
