Real patriots obey the law

Thanks to Joe Stone for his commentary on fireworks making life tough for a lot of veterans in Wednesday’s Everett Herald.

I hope many of those who have mindlessly blasted hundreds of dollars worth of explosives off with great glee in the past will be a bit more patriotic in the future and limit their activities to legal explosives and legal times.

That is what a real patriot would do to celebrate and not make others miserable.
