Air quality was a fantastically positive and critically needed attribute of our environment in pandemic Wasatch Front this spring and summer.

That is, until June 27, on which night this quality of life was terminated by the libertarian impulses of a few idiots who lit fireworks adjacent to thousands of acres of suburban brush land.

If curbing this stupidity by rule of law is considered socialism, then yep, I guess I’m a socialist.
