"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

On a more prosaic level, I have one piece of advice for the yahoos who seem to think that a dense urban neighborhood is a good place for amateur fireworks displays: I like watching things blow up as much as the next guy, but just as puking marks the moment at which one should stop drinking, likewise a four-alarm house fire in the neighborhood marks the moment at which one should stop shooting off bottle rockets.
Anyway, I hope your holiday was safe and enjoyable. Now, get back to work.
