I enjoy celebrating our independence every year, as well as enjoy the fireworks displays. Here in Ohio, we aren't allowed to let off fireworks, but we do have some great displays in our local towns. Of course the law banning fireworks doesn't stop people from setting them off. At 1:00 this morning I still had people around me letting off super loud mortars. That got me to thinking. We hear about towns being so financially hurt in Ohio, so why don't they do a revenue increase by enforcing the laws on fireworks? Sure, you might be thinking I'm a scrooge, and hey I love letting them off too. But if law enforcement would just go after those firing off their poppers at all hours of the night then the towns will get a little more money and the law-abiding, or at least courteous citizens will get some decent sleep.
