Whiskey Wick
The Dover fireworks were ok this year. Sure there was a good variety in the display: streamers, whistlers, those funky ones where the sparks make a shape like Saturn. It's just that the finale was terrible. Everything was mistimed, and it looked as though a complete stack of shots didn't even get the order from the computer to ignite and launch. After what appeared to be the end of the finale, everyone was surprised to see extra shots firing off a few minutes later - a short burst here, a dribble of explosions there; a few more piddling detonations went on for another 5 minutes after the supposed end. People just gave up and started walking away - all while the fireworks people strained to get the remaining shells off. Note to fireworks launch crew: You want to have your finale go off with force - with everything you got. It entertains no one when belabored shots trickle out after the audience thinks you're done.

There seemed to be a lot of low ones too. I hate the "High School" years.
