Happy 4th of July everyone! Enjoy your freedom. Enjoy your families. Enjoy the loud fireworks and the corn on the cob and the grilled something or other.
Hold on tight, as you spin too fast on the tilt-a-whirl. Try not to hear the tinkling sound of nuts and bolts being jerkily shimmied out of rides at the carnival... Some of those are redundant any way. It's fine!
Hey, are we ever leaving Iraq? What do you think?
Because of the nuclear threat, must we really recognize the corrupt Ahmadinejad in Iran and continue to speak to him, thereby legitimizing his fraudulent election victory?
Life is complicated.
Let's just have fun today and enjoy our kids marching in parades, or watching parades and enjoy the summer fun of the 4th.
Happy 4th everyone!
