ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Happy Fourth of July


My plan for today?

  1. Prominently and jingoistically display the Stars & Stripes
  2. Go watch a small-town parade (one of the top 50 places to live in the country, according to Money magazine!) with my wife & kids. (Yes, you feminazis out there, I used the possessive pronoun... and yes, watching a small town parade may involve a lot of flags, perhaps a display of military force, and perhaps even some floats by local churches - Christian churches. Just to make sure that the patriarchy continues....)
  3. Put 13 pounds of pork shoulder (half to be Eastern Carolina Pulled Pork, the other half Jamaican jerked) on a water smoker filled with beer and sit back and watch the smoke flow forth.
  4. Share some patriotic (and jingoistic) Sam Adams Summer Brews with friends & family (He was a Brewer and a Patriot!)
  5. Eat more Jamaican Jerk Pork than I should
  6. Shoot off some fireworks made by some Chinese guy 12 months ago - to celebrate the militaristic foundation of our country.
  7. Watch a small town fireworks display (one of the top 50 places to live in the US!) and return to my humble abode where I'll pay for too much Jamaican Jerk
I may also try and watch The Patriot as well... Or perhaps phone up my friends & colleagues in the UK and ask them if they're enjoying the day off. What's that?? July 4th isn't a holiday over there??? Oh... that's rrrrrrright!

Happy (and safe) Fourth of July, everyone!
