Happy 4th of July

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4,
not with a parade of guns, tanks
and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle.
But with family picnics where kids throw Frisbee's, the potato salad gets iffy,
and the flies die from happiness.
You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
