no fireworks makes the baby jesus cry

Chicago cancels July 3 fireworks show

This makes me very sad. Not because I am one of the 1 million in the audience. I enjoy it from the comfort of my couch on tv. It makes me sad because it's another tradition that's now dead.

What's next? No dying the river green for St. Patrick's Day?

Stupid economy.

Aw, nuts.

I mean, I get it for crowd control and all that. But there's just something incredibly energizing about that enormous crowd, all there for the exact same thing.

Exactly! And honestly it drives traffic to Taste of Chicago. I BET attendance goes down as a result. Because the incentive has been removed.
