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 Frisbees,
the potato salad gets iffy,
and the flies die from happiness.
You may think you have overeaten,
but it is patriotism."

~Erma Bombeck
