Even peace-loving folks like fireworks, but I think almost everyone hates the stealth bombers who set off extra-loud M-80s before, during, and after the Fourth of July. In particular, I think that these insensitive morons are being cruel to animals, who have no defenses against stupid human tricks. If you don’t know what I am talking about, ask any dog or cat owner how pets react to quarter sticks of dynamite going off day and night. If the critters could speak, they might say, “Get me out of here.” To top it off, Pacifica’s mad bombers got away with murder this year. According to published police logs, only one citation was issued. Zero tolerance, my ass!
