Diwali: Festival of ‘war’

Diwali – the season of terrified dogs and terrified little children. I sit here in my kitchen watching and listening to the “war” of fireworks being lit off around our house.

A call to the police complaint desk got me nowhere. Year after year they get the same calls from people complaining about the fireworks, which I might add, comes under the classification of explosives. They said “complain to the city.”

Really? And just where do you think that will get me? Complain to a city that has no backbone as seen with the abundance of illegal suites.

A city with a mayor afraid to enforce the bylaws for fear of angering a large voting population.

I think such a complaint will get me no further than my complaint to the police.
