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.

Attendance for the Taste will plummet on the third, and that's an enormous pile of money just vanishing into the wind.
