Let's see ... 30,000 vs. 2,000. How do you define success? Keep your heads in the sand, Council. The People want the fireworks back! All I heard was, "San Ramon is un-American, canceling the fireworks." Guess there are some things you can't put a price tag on!

"The People?", Jane that sounds very socialist, you must be some crazed communist, Obama lover. The San Ramon town council knows what real American's want on the 4th of July, No celebration whatsoever. After all that cost money and in this country there is no way we would ever spend any money on "The People".

Lets keep fireworks displays out of San Ramon and allow more Tea Party folk to stand on street corners. After all they cost less and are far more "patriotic"

Don't miss out on the discussion!
