O.M.G. $5,000 for actual fireworks and $25,000.00 in the cops pockets on 4 X holiday overtime?

Where does all the donation money go? Just ask each smiling police guy or girl at the fireworks display how much money they are making per hour and see how many conflicting different answers you get if they answer u at all.

If it gets completely rained out: 1. Less noise pollution from explosions, 2. less air pollution from smoke, 3. less environmental litter and impact from all the falling paper and debris, 4. less carbon monoxide from all the vehicular traffic to and from, 5. less litter from all the spectators, 6. less drunks walking and driving on the road, 7. more money to be donated to the needed for survival rather then entertainment of the well off and the list goes on and on, 8.9.10,11,12. Hope it is completely rained out so people can get back to basics and appreciate things without having to put on the usual Madison look at us show.

According to the Madison fireworks committee, last year 2011 about 97% of Madison homeowners chose not to support the Madison fireworks by not making any financial contribution. HELLO! There is a reason you have two eyes and two ears so why not use them? The overwhelming vast majority of Madison residents do not support or want a nuisance fireworks display in town.
