I know the media claims we are all making stone soup and wrapping rags around our feet because of the 'orrible economy, but could they please explain why my starving and penniless neighbors expended enough fireworks last night to light up the night sky for hours and hours? And these weren't cheap little sparkler fountains, either. I'm talking big sparkly sky chrysanthemums. BIG. Lots of 'em. I have a hard time crediting things are that desperate when this much cheerful discretionary spending goes on.
Or maybe they were trying to scare away the Demons of Recession??
