Very good post on Eschaton connecting the new DHS / BATF regulation of fireworks displays (because, uh, they could be terrorism) with this:

[Rumsfeld's] staffers have been phoning city officials, including some in Orange County, and strongly urging them to structure Fourth of July celebrations around the war in Iraq.

"I got the impression that they had a list of every city in the nation that had applied for a pyrotechnics permit, and were calling them to persuade them to be part of the program," said one OC city official.

Hmm. Could that be...nah.
