These are strange times for holidays, especially for ones that mark this country’s celebration of its military and today, its Independance. News of North Korea testing a successful Intercontinental Ballistic Missile capable of hitting Alaska is yet a new low. So with that in mind, I think it’s a good time to think hard about who, where and what we are as a nation and as a people. So as you slather mustard and ketchup on your burgers and weiners, keep an eye peeled for the fireworks. If they appear just a bit too big and vivid, put your head firmly between your legs and kiss the good times Buh Bye!!!!!
