We live in NYS. Anything that goes pop, fizz, bang or glows is illegal.

The following comment is way off topic but I'd like to ask Mr. Borgolini to proofread in the future. His article on the HRBRRD and the numbers he throws out don't make owes FC $1.66 and the surrounding districts $1.66 million combined. Badly done sir.

If the music is so bad you need a fireworks show to make it interesting then who needs it. Fire plus flammables = news article on stupid people. Enough said ...

I say that with this band of BAN EVERYTHING in charge all across the land that it should very soon be much safer to do nothing... as that is all that you will be allowed to do! Lets pass some new laws in the wee hours to restrict the good people even more!

Portnoy , but what about people who don't put them selves at risk? say they go to a concert and not know there will by fireworks in an enclosed setting? or what about a neighbor to a club or bar and they end up dying from their building being caught on fire. it's happened you know. take a look at the bigger picture and stop thinking so selfishly.

TiredOfTax, where in this article did it mention anything about a ban? Are you delusional?

It is obvious that your massive intellect does not allow for sarcasm identification. Not delusional just planing ahead of the massive new restrictions passed down from the almighty democrats to those of us that do not know what is good for us.

Universal Orlando plans to stop offering medical insurance to part-time employees beginning next year, a move the resort says has been forced by the federal government's health-care overhaul.

The giant theme-park resort, which generates more than $1 billion in annual revenue, began informing employees this month that it will offer health-insurance to part-timers "only until December 31, 2013." OOPS another off topic comment, I bad!!

A USA TODAY/Pew Research Center poll finds that President Obama starts his second term with a clear upper hand on issues from guns to immigration that are likely to dominate the year. "On many of the issues, President Obama has staked out positions that seem to be closer to the publics thinking than the positions Republicans have staked out" says Michael Dimock, director of the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press.

usedto- can't agree or disagree w/that post because you cited USA TODAT, a paper I read every day. But Disco seems to have translated the Obamaspeak to the truth.

swizzer - threr you go making everything that happens somebody's fault. Nobody needs to be aware of what's going on around them, just ignore the noise and go on about your business, if you get blind sided you can always blame those around you for being negligent. You are never negligent for not being observant and aware of your surroundings. - I'm calling my lawyer,we're going to sue the pants off those uncaring bas***ds

TiredOfTax, if Universal Orlando won't offer this benefit to part-time employees even while making that revenue, I'd say it has more to do with corporate. They seem to want to use Obamacare as a cheap excuse for just wanting to keep more money.

TiredOfTax, you're a funny woman. You know d-amned well there was no mention about a ban on fireworks in-doors, but try and scare people into thinking there either should be or that we're headed that way and that somehow that was bad. I told you you were delusional for thinking that, as no where in editorial did it mention this. Then you come back and try and say that you were actually employing the use of a literary tool like sarcasm as an excuse for your stupidity.

Show some class if you're going to try and dance with me.

RS, is that the best an over educated man(?) can do? Reread your post and tell me why you had to resort to name calling... and I do so want you to keep typing replies because the people that actually know sarcasm are thoroughly enjoying your comments. PS you are right I do know that there is no ban on fireworks in-doors... YET but now that it is in the news the LIBERALS will be glad to introduce one next to the size pop you can drink, the amount of salt you can consume, the guns you can own and a plethora of other liberal proposed bans!

I just heard today on CNN that there is a used car deficit... only the story is over 3 years behind, Obama helped increase that with the cash for clunkers, it destroyed hundreds of thousands of very usable vehicles. Also in the news today, unemployment on the rise... wait a couple of weeks when Obama's fiscal cliff idea goes rolling over the edge... bye bye economy! Hello to drastic unemployment and huge surge in social benefits. Right up O's alley put more Americans on the gravy train... choo choo the Obama express is charging through to an unemployment center near you!

usedto - sometimes Congress passes laws, but that is only if they are joking. Municipalities sometimes pass laws too, some are really good like - no drinks allowed more than 16 oz. each, but you can buy all the `16 oz-ers you want. No transfats allowed in restaurants- not good for you. Click-it-or-ticket seatbelt laws where someplaces motorcycle helmets are legally optional.

Sometimes municipalities are funnier about laws than Congress. The sad thing is that some places actively enforce this crap.
