FIREWORKS: TNT shouldn’t promote dangerous activity

Re: “Mad dash for fireworks has begun” (TNT, 6-28).

Once again The News Tribune gives a front-page ad for the tribal fireworks stands. They are selling fireworks – many of which are illegal to shoot off outside tribal land – that injure numerous people each year.

If I wanted to advertise my business, I couldn’t do it on the front page and if I could, how much would it cost? I doubt that The News Tribune is doing the community a good service by helping promote an illegal activity.

The News Tribune now uses Facebook commenting on selected blogs. See editor's column for more details. Commenters are expected to abide by terms of service for Facebook as well as commenting rules for thenewstribune.com. Report violators to webmaster@thenewstribune.com.
