Four Score And Seven Years Ago…

We’ve given our writers time off today to eat barbecue, watch fireworks, or do whatever else they want to celebrate Independence Day, a.k.a. The Fourth of July.

All you readers outside the U.S. who happen to be working today: Now you know how we feel when y’all get to go on long summer and December holidays :-p

In the spirit of things, I’ll just wish everyone a happy summer holiday specific to various countries. (BTW these greetings fall well under the 160-character SMS message limit.)

 So: Happy Bastille Day! Happy O-Bon! Happy Canada Day! Happy Midsummer/St. John’s Day/Festa Junina!

And of course, Happy Fourth!
