We have people in our neighborhood who know how to set them off responsibly. I don't worry about them.
We also have a couple of idjits who obviously don't.
I'm okay with people blowing off whatever to have fun, up until the moment it threatens to burn down my or my neighbors' houses. At that point, I'm ready for "No Mercy."
This year, I'm partying elsewhere tonight. So I won't be faced with the moral dilemma, or its accompanying stress. I *do* plan to water the yard thoroughly before I leave.
