Ahh, (American) Independence Day.

Ok, sure, it's a little hard to be proud of this country at times, and the sad reality is that we haven't exactly been the good guys during a lot of our history... But, well, it ain't all bad.

And, hey, it's a great excuse to blow some shit up. Which, political correctness and recent paranoia aside, is one of the great pleasures in life (IMHO). And somehow, it seems appropriate, given the holiday.

I was just thinking about a year ago at this time... Definitely an interesting experience
