Regarding fireworks being an act of terrorism (letter, 7-2): According to John Adams, our second president, Independence Day “ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews (Shows), Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

Do you really think he was a terrorist?
