An American Tradition

As we celebrate our nation's independence once again, what could be more quintessentially American than...

Fireworks? No, those are Chinese.

A dumb ass with a rifle doing a little target practice at 1:00 a.m. at an auto salvage lot where he worked setting off $80,000 of stored fireworks?

Makes me want to whistle Yankee Doodle.

The towns of Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo, Washington stored their fireworks at the lot. The guy knew they were there, but was undeterred. I wonder if alcohol was involved?

Dumb ass?  check.
Rifle?  check.
Alcohol? check.
$80,000 worth of fireworks in storage container? check.

Apply some bug spray and cue the Sousa march, we're honoring America.
