Khloe Kardashian's fireworks show: Where was our government?

To the editor: The post-midnight fireworks show Tuesday put on for a private party thrown by Khloe Kardashian woke up me and and most of my neighborhood. ("Disruptive Kardashian fireworks show sparks calls for investigation," Aug. 27)

What's upsetting is not only the arrogance of the person responsible for the event but also the way everyone in various government agencies are pointing fingers about who did or did not permit it.


This reflects a huge problem in this country: Rich people can do whatever they want, and the government does not or cannot do anything about it.

To the editor: I found the juxtaposition of two articles in Thursday's paper interesting.

One reported the passing of Amelia Boynton Robinson, a woman of accomplishment and inspiration; the other was about one of the Kardashians (it doesn't matter which one) throwing a party that disrupted the sleep of her Playa del Rey neighbors.

Perhaps you positioned these articles next to each other hoping that a Kardashian might read about someone of meaningful accomplishment.
