Happy 4th of July

"I despise my own nation most. Because I know it best. Because I still love it, suffering from Hope. For me, that's patrotism." -- Edward Abbey

Happy 4th July. Did you and the family have a good time?

Thank you sir. We're mostly laying low this weekend. Drunken revelers and a new law allowing the public to buy fireworks is not a healthy mix.

We did catch X-Men: First Class yesterday, and liked it.

Me too - liking it that is. It was the first X-Men movie that I really liked and also one of the few super-hero movies that I honestly enjoyed.

I'd be more worried about the drunken revelers carrying fire*arms* rather than fire*works*!

This is another of those scenarios where I'm glad others celebrate, but I'm happy to lay low and (at most) maybe catch some fireworks from my back yard.

CK -- "I'd be more worried about the drunken revelers carrying fire*arms* rather than fire*works*! - Indeed. We have those too ... usually the same people.

Wunelle -- There have been plenty of years where we went to the big shindigs in Phoenix or Scottsdale, but as I get older, hanging out in 110 degree weather with 100,000 of my closest friends doesn't have the appeal it once did.

Shindigs?
