Here’s to Another Fourth of July

I hope that you spend it celebrating some constitutional liberties and avoiding any Lee Greenwood ditties.  I did not escape the latter fate last night during the Capitol dress rehearsal for tonight’s July 4 concert. While Gladys Knights and the Pips were a no show (nothing like a middle aged white woman lip syncing Midnight Train to Georgia on the jumbatron), the Marine Corps band brought down the house with the Battle Hymn of the Republic accompanied by some sexy firepower action: the release of ye olde cannon balls during the charge of the light brigade. Good times.
