Ow. Seattle's fireworks resuscitation juxtaposed against more pressing issues around Western Washington (cartoon by Frank Shiers, opinion, April 7). Kind of unfair in that these other areas have fireworks displays to see (or no?). Seattle is concerned about the same things, so...how is it helpful to be divisive? I think some of us don't give a rip about the fireworks (I can't ever stay awake that long), and did feel like Richie Riches throwing money at the "problem" was a bit odd. But rich folks do these things (it keeps their taxes down?) while the workin' Joe frets over money/jobs. Every city is full of regular folks. Even Seattle. There are probably some frivolous, spoiled prigs in Everett, Olympia and Port Angeles too. Are you from Lake Woebegone?
