Note to my fireworks-loving Italian neighbours

Why celebrate a supposedly joyous event - the ushering in of a new year, say - with the acoustic equivalent of downtown Mogadishu on a bad day? Who actually likes the sound of fireworks?  (Or the look of them either, but that's another complaint of mine ...).

Sounds-wise they're exactly like missiles, bombs, high-velocity gunfire and just about any ordnance you care to name. Basta! Stop playing with your sound weapons I say (leave the gunfire sounds to the show-off big kids of gangsta rap) and let's have some music next year .....
