The only thing that’s missing in our little assemblage above: sparklers.
Those of you living in the great state of New York will be able to guess why we’re going without this year: they’re illegal! (And we are a law-abiding company.*) But there’s hope. For the third year, in a row, state legislation has been proposed to legalize small hand-held sparklers—which is a bipartisan issue we can support 100%.
Regardless of your political affiliation or stance on recreational explosives, we wish you a wonderful 4th of July.
*Mostly. Some of us jaywalk.
