Early last evening, just after dark, my neighbors on Westmont Ave and streets surrounding all beganRead More spraying the air with dangerous fireworks, some hundreds of feet in the air. In this time of drought it is crazy to conduct these illegal behaviors. Soon helicopters were circling and fire engines were sirening, and at whose expense
Don't lose control and blow off any fingers this year.

Again: Apples & Oranges. You argument is not relevant to the discussion. Give it up or tryRead More another rant. What about the old stand-by: Marijuana and Alcohol?

Rich, get your facts straight. Start with the definition of 'rant'. 'To speak or write in an angryRead More or violent manner'. If anything is a rant, many of your comments are, such as "You can't handle the truth!" a rant from 'A Few Good Men". Let's have some original rants at least. The discussion is injuries and fireworks on the 4th of July holiday period, correct? Well, injuries on the 4th also come from other sources besides fireworks, and one of those sources is bicycles. You can't seem to accept that 3 times more injuries are caused by bicycles than fireworks on the 4th, yet no one gets in a tizzy over that fact. Why the hoopla by the author over firework injuries? They are news worthy. How news worthy is it if someone like a weatherman loses an eye while riding a bicycle, perhaps running into a tree branch? Some may even regard such an accident on a bike as being 'inept'. However, have him lose an eye from a fireworks accident, whatever the circumstances, it is national news. Sure, fireworks can be dangerous if used incorrectly, but, if used incorrectly, so are a lot of other activities that we enjoy, are we going to outlaw them as well??? Again, be careful riding that bike.

Alcohol is is probably the most dangerous and damaging drug. Around 35,000 Americans are killed inRead More alcohol related auto accidents every year. About 88,000 die when you add alcohol related diseases. Countless lives and families are destroyed. Personally, my childhood memories are nothing but fear and embarrassment from having a drunk parent. So it should never be taken lightly or promoted. If you do drink, please do so extremely carefully, responsibly, and consider what your actions do to people around you.

While this looks fun and enticing to adults - remember it also looks attractive to teens andRead More underage youth. Promoting and glamorizing alcohol consumption at family friendly events and occasions like the 4th of July can send the wrong message to youth. We need to model the behavior we want our youth to mimic. Family friendly and alcohol free drinks are just as fun and pretty. Let's promote and model healthy choices for our teens.

The "corporate" bit is a ruse to prevent or delay photography inside places of business.Read More Generally, there are policies in place that give site managers discretion to allow photography for "legitimate purposes," e.g. news coverage. That said, one can't simply photograph in a place of business or on any private property without permission. It's considered a form of trespass, and agents of the property have the right to ask you why you're photographing, to stop photographing or even to leave. If you refuse, you can be charged with trespassing. (They can do this even if you represent a legitimate news agency.) Always know your rights, and restrictions, as a photojournalist and get permission when necessary. It saves time that would be better used at making pictures. (Yeah, there's something to be said for "It's better to ask forgiveness than permission," but that can also get sticky.)
