Seriously?!? Who Does This?!?

Joseph Viganola of New Jersey, that's who.  And what did he do? He started a brush fire in Scottsdale, Arizona after setting off flaming projectile fireworks on the Pinnacle Peak hiking trail.

The last thing that poor, wildfire-ravaged state needs is another fire, Mr. Viganola. If you've not noticed, it's incredibly hot, dry and windy. Knock it off! And tell all the other fireworks-obsessed people to chill out this year. This goes for those here in New Mexico, as well. 

Call me a curmudgeon, but I hope they ban fireworks this year. They're just so dangerous in ignorant hands, and conditions are scary-dry and windy. 

P.S. Is it me, or has it been windy here in Abq for, like, three months straight now? We're giving Chicago a run for its money, right here.
