Happy 4th, Everyone!

4th of July fireworks over Fort McHenry.

And the rockets’ red glare
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there

I’ll be taking a day off from the culture wars to remember — and appreciate — what all Americans have in common.

Have a great 4th. Drink real American beer and eat real hamburgers, not that frou-frou pale ale and mealy, environmentalist-approved fake “meat”… whoops, slipped again! Enjoy the holiday any way you please!
