Sparks are flying from all directions this Fourth of July fireworks season

America may be divided on politics, race, gender, immigration, the economy, gun control, climate change, vaccine passports and myriad other issues, but at least we can all agree on how to celebrate our own nation’s birthday, right? Nope. Those “bonfires and illuminations” that future President John Adams encouraged citizens to light every Fourth of July are breathtaking bones of contention.

That decision is sti...
