Fireworks for Sale
The week before the 4th of July, fireworks tents sprout up in and around the city like unwanted weeds. Then a few days after the 4th, they rapidly disappear. It's illegal to buy certain fireworks in Florida unless you use them for agricultural purposes. To get around the law, people who wish to buy these fireworks go into a fireworks for sale tent, sign a paper saying they'll use them for agricultural purposes, buy a bunch of fireworks and then blow them up on residential streets. I'll bet a lot of these folks are members of the "Law and Order" bunch. I'll bet they also break the law by driving over the speed limit.
