Legal Bombs

Some pretty horrible things happened over the weekend, but the 20-year-old who had his right hand blown off by a firework was among the worst. Okay, so it doesn’t compare with what is going on in Falluja at the moment, but the thing is that patently powerful explosive was sold quite legally.

Yes, the legislation brought in to curb the sale of fireworks to youngsters has apparently worked with a marked absence of whizzes and bangs that we’ve endured during previous Octobers, but here was a 20-year-old to make a purchase that will pretty much wreck the rest of his life. Awful.
