The Glorious 4th

I left a comment about the Fourth of July in my neighborhood over at Clayton Cramer's blog:

I'm pleased to report that the citizens of my town committed massive civil disobedience on the night of the 4th. In Ohio, while it's legal to sell fireworks, it's illegal to use them, other than sparklers and "novelties."

Well, last night, many of my neighbors launched spectacular unlicensed rockets from their backyards. It was a pretty good, if uncoordinated, show, and I didn't have to move more than 40 feet from my refrigerator to see it. Scofflaws.

Made me proud to be an American and a Buckeye.

Other than some expended ordnance on my driveway, no damage.
