Feeling a bit down this July 4th. I like fireworks, which are completely illegal here in Nevada. But it wasn't always that way! I remember in the 70's coming up to visit a cousin in Truckee, and then heading for the fireworks stands around Reno/Sparks. I'd head back on I-80, ducking off the freeway onto the main drag to miss the 'bug station' and any possible inspections. Sometime in the 80's, I guess, fireworks were made illegal here in Nevada. So, too, have so many other things changed in our once great country. There's a blogger with a snarky viewpoint on this whole 4th of July thing that pretty much sums up where I'm at this year.
Happy 4th of July!
