Burn, baby, burn

On October 16, 1777, -- 230 years ago --British troops invaded the city of Kingston (then the state's capital) and burned more than 300 structures.

So the city is remembering the heroes of that tragic day with, of course, a whole weekend of cool events (because when you think of your city burning, you think of fun, fun, fun!)

So the "red coats" are coming to "burn" Kingston again this weekend all over the city.

So here's a short list of things that should burn and forever be gone:

1. Political signs. All of them.
2. Political pamphlets on mailboxes. Especially the ones that are littering the city's sidewalks.
3. Political stickers on people's cars (if you do -- and you shouldn't -- please don't burn the cars, or the people).
4. Other stickers on people's cars (Yes, I don't care that your kid is an honor student).
5. My bills.

Feel free to add your own to the pile. And no, you can't burn me.
