Fireworks don’t belong here

Michael Idczak
former Vail resident, Toledo, Ohio

I wanted to follow up on the letter to the editor by the vice president of Phantom Fireworks regarding our right as Americans to set off fireworks. Although I agree that fireworks may be safe for humans and a lot of fun, residents of the valley know the extreme fire danger that aerial fireworks posses. Potential for an extreme forest fire in the valley is not a matter of if, but when. I am in no hurry to ski Vail’s new “frontside bowls.”
