"Fireworks, Daddy!" Angel crowed, seizing her father's hand
and pulling him from his recliner.  He protested as they
filed through the entryway:

"Hon, there's no fireworks until Thanksgiving; they foul
the atmosphere.  Angel, the dome's small enough that we 
would be able to hear them.  Angel!"  But then they were
out the door and on the terrace, looking down the crater
wall across the Mare Imbrium.  Angel pointed triumphantly
upwards.  "Fireworks!"

Angel enjoyed the yellow flares stippling the earth's blue
background, spreading and fading to atomic orange.  Her
father liked it less.

Why would anybody cry at a fireworks show?
