Happy Independence Day

Happy Fourth of July! Why are you indoors reading this rather than out celebrating our birthday with whatever picnic, barbecue, friend or family party you enjoy? Go on out and have fun!

I'll be in far northern Michigan where it doesn't get dark enough for fireworks until well after 10pm, celebrating with three of the most patriotic people I know.

That doesn't mean they subscribe to "America, Right or Wrong!" It means they subscribe to "America, Right the Wrongs!"

America isn't perfect yet and although we are still well ahead of most other countries it does help to remember that tomorrow we'll need to be back at work trying to improve those areas where we are yet lacking - like good, affordable schools and health care for everyone, peace at long, long last, and equality, true equality for all our citizens.

Happy Fourth of July! Now, let's get to work!

Thanks, Nancy!

Chilebrown, my dogs used to shiver on the Fourth until they got so old that they could no longer hear the bangs. Hope yours survived the madness well.
