Are you going to the fireworks tomorrow night? Here’s some general information on it if you’re thinking of going—probably useless information but I’m providing it anyway.
I hope the fireworks actually happen. The weather forecast is calling for a lot of rain as a result of Hurricane Isaac which leads me to ask the question why hurricanes are given first names but not last names. Isaac should have a last name. Hurricane Isaac Smith.
Sorry, getting off the subject here. . .
The Labor Day Fireworks has now grown into what is called “P&G Riverfest.” I guess that’s all right with me as Proctor & Gamble is a corporation that has always been based in Cincinnati, but I’d be lying if I said the name didn’t have a “corporate” feel to it. It’s hard for me to associate the word “fun” with anything corporate.
To me, this annual event will always be called the WEBN Labor Day Fireworks. Yeah, Cincinnati Bell is involved with this, let another corporation, but most of us forget the Cincinnati Bell part and I think that’s the way it should be.
Why am I starting to go off on this corporate stuff? It doesn’t matter.
Anyway, living over here in Covington, Kentucky, I can see Cincinnati from my apartment building and I have it on good authority that if I climb up to the roof, it provides an excellent view of the fireworks. I know there’s going to be a party up there tomorrow night.
I’ve been invited but I doubt if I’ll go. I don’t want any sparks from those fireworks landing on my walking cane and setting it on fire.
Enjoy the fireworks. Fireworks are fireworks. Not corporate at all.
