4th of July explosion as a metaphor

"Every picture tells a story, don't it?" Rod Stewart (and Ron Wood) said that back in 1971. It's true. On the 4th of July in San Diego, apparently a fireworks display meant to go on for 20 minutes exploded in about 15 seconds. Oops.  Not the desired outcome.

The irony of such a massive blowout happening in California, a state perilously teetering on bankruptcy, is not lost on some. The sudden, unexpected and explosive mistake serves as great metaphor for the state, if not the nation.
