It seems to me that if people are using the fireworks safely and there has not be a tremendous increase in injuries, what is the harm ("Fireworks shock and intimidate," Jan. 13)? Frankly, playing football is far more dangerous than lighting fireworks. Think of how many football injuries there are. No one is considering stopping that activity. Let's let folks celebrate the 4th of July and New Year's as they choose. And to those who say, "Leave it to the professionals," I have to say that sometimes participating is more fun than watching!
