To the editor:
What's with firing off a cannon in South Park? Isn't that a wee bit dangerous both to pedestrians as well as to traffic? While driving down Massachusetts Street on a "once" peaceful Sunday afternoon, I was not expecting to hear a cannon shot. I was so startled by the blast that I almost lost control of my car. It's a miracle I didn't run into another vehicle, not to mention being badly shaken and having my ears hurt.
Not only that, what happened to the law against discharging firearms inside the city limits? This kind of nonsense should be done outside of town where it would be safer and not disturbing the peace and quiet of a Sunday afternoon.
