Don't forget to pick up your party necessities at the grocery store, such as soda, hotdog buns, potato chips, and fireworks.
That's right, Rhode Island has decided that making the sale of fireworks legal in the state is the answer to a struggling economy. My understanding of economics is pretty sketchy, but I don't get why this is a good idea. Just because people like to set things on fire and make them go "bang" doesn't mean they should. Of course, if a lot of people get hurt and emergency rooms have to hire more staff to deal with the influx, we may have a winner.
