The 4th of July holiday was marred by a fatal fireworks incident in Quakertown on Saturday night. It's the kind of story you hear almost every year, but when it happens in your own backyard, it's impact is profound. A detailed report is still forthcoming from authorities, but a 19 year old 'fireworks technican' was struck and killed on Saturday night in an apparent malfunction. It's a sad story regardless of the details, but 19 seems young to have much responsiblity in carrying out a public fireworks display. More in the fullness of time.
