To the editor:
I’m all for fireworks celebrating our 4th of July, America's Independence Day.
However, I take objection to the question at the end of article about Big Bay Boom Bust: “Should Garden State be forced to redo the show this weekend?”
But the poll question is: “Should the 2012 Big Bay Boom fireworks show be redone this weekend?”
To the article question is my objection: NO, I don’t think they should be “FORCED” to redo the show, because I heard live phone conversations on TV News yesterday morning with the co-owner of the company and the producer of the fireworks program.
They not only apologized, explained what happened but “OFFERED” to make things right and would put on another fireworks show without charge.
To the poll question, I say: Not really, because this weekend there are many other events already scheduled, and scheduled around the 4th of July fireworks and events so as not to interfere with our great celebration like the Veterans Stand Down July 13-15 that many volunteers will be involved with.
Visitors who come especially for the 4th of July fireworks will not necessarily still be in town, especially those who come from afar.
And because you are beyond the Moment of SIGNIFICANCE !
To further comment: Since the company has already offered to make things right, including at “no charge,” then how about that “no-charge offer” be accepted for the 4th of July 2013 event?
