"Only three San Ramon residents, two of whom were teenagers, spoke before the City Council"
What difference does it make that two of the three who spoke at the City Council were teenagers? What implication is Kevin Wing trying to make? Would he write "one of who was elderly" or "two of whom were Asian" with regards to future meetings?

I feel the "only three San Ramon residents.." comment might give the wrong impression on how much interest the residents have taken in this. Here is a quote from Web Link : "City officials wanted to gauge input from residents on the matter. More than 600 e-mails were received during a period of several days leading up to Tuesday night's council meeting. Among those e-mails, nearly half -- or 296 e-mails -- were in support of continuing with the fireworks display. "
The San Ramon Patch (erroneously) ran front page articles about how the council had decided to cancel the fireworks immediately after that February 14th meeting and for days after. I wonder how much of an impact that had on the turnout for this meeting (at a changed venue, at that).

I just want to know why cities can have fireworks any time they want but the citizens can't even burn wood in their own fireplace?
