Letter | Was letter about noise meant as satire?

July 16, 2013 

Re: July 11 Letter from Brian O’Brien, “July 4th, nightly noise a bedtime nightmare”

To the author: Was this supposed to be sarcastic, serious or funny? I know that you go to bed early, or is this late?

If it was July 4th, aren't fireworks pretty much expected unless it rains? if you hear the noises every night then why were you surprised on this night when you heard loud noises coming from the sky at the same time? Where are you in Little River where there are fireworks every night at 10?

Also, who are the nice government people and what law was passed and how does this pertain to the noise? I too need my sleep but I like organized fireworks so I am at a loss as to what I am supposed to do or say in regard to this topic. Perhaps there is a back story of which I am unaware and I would like to be enlightened. Please clarify.
