My Independence Day thought: During the power outage, some guy commented -- sarcastically -- "Oh, the power is still out. What a great country we live in."
I wanted to say: "Uh... yeah. 99+% of the year, you are capable of literally using satellites to look down on other countries and Skype ACROSS THE GLOBE. Some people can SKYPE INTO SPACE. In almost place at almost any time, I can get food, lemonade and cookies. We're a freaking great country."
Also, we celebrate by blowing things up.
Edit: I got to see the fireworks and hear the show. So, all's good. Let us label today: Productive.
