Happy, safe 4th, everyone!

All men are created equal

That’s all fine and well but I think the following is the more relevant passage for our current situation.

I thought it was funny (in a good way) that over here at 7:30am yesterday there were loads of people huddles over picnic breakfasts to watch a baseball game in the drizzling rain cheese This was around the corner from me in the local sports field. 

Around 7pm, under lights and again in the rain, in the next suburb, there was an American football match (I think for under-17s). 
A very active 4th here, cheesecheesecheese

Oh, if you read The Guardian, I thought Robert Reich wrote an excellent opinion piece.
