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.
