A Fireworks-Free Fourth

Shooting flaming explosives into the air during California’s megadrought may not be the best idea.

Over 100 scientists urged people in the western U.S. to “skip the fireworks this July 4th.”

I like celebrating our independence as much as the next ‘Merican, but let’s stick with flag-waving, barbecuing and beer-drinking this Fourth of July.
