To the people who sat in Spots Park or along Waugh Drive to watch the downtown fireworks display last night:
If you were one of the many, many people who left behind your bottles, cans, napkins, paper towels, chip bags, cigarette packs, and everything else you didn't feel like carrying back to your car when the party was over, WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH YOU? You go to the park and presumably enjoy the fireworks that are in celebration of our country, and yet you trash it. Are you proud of that? Do you know what example you set? I'm sure you don't even think about it. But what you did was so completely unnecessary that it's disgraceful.
You should be ashamed.
