Waiting on Darwinism
As a followup to an editorial published last week calling for a moratorium to limit the lighting of fireworks to one hour or less after sunset, county prosecutor Joseph Hubbell advises patience as the answer.
Commissioners, meeting Tuesday, spent some time discussing complaints they’ve handled and late-night barrages they’ve heard. There’s little county government can do, although some municipalities plan to enforce ordinances to limit fireworks. A new state law allowed citizens to buy a powerful array of fireworks.
“My other thought is that sooner or later, Darwinism will come into the picture and the problem will take care of itself,” suggested Mr. Hubbell.
Too bad we can’t hide out on the Galapagos islands while this all plays out.
