The town’s gone nuts!

We have what is referred to as a “No Brainer” when it comes to the sale of fireworks this season in Nevada County. I guess what that means is that those who sell fireworks under wildfire conditions, and those who auth-orize these sales, have no brains.

Gov. Schwarzenegger has stepped in to help these unfortunates in their decision making, but still they won’t listen.

If I were governor, I’d mandate that all city and county officials, as well as the vendors who sell fireworks in the dry heat of Nevada County, be required to have an immediate psychiatric evaluation. Those who continue to not see the logic in banning fireworks would be classified as terrorists.
