Happy Birthday, America


There will be very little blogging here today, but the comment threads remain open. For those of you who prefer surfing the Net to barbecue and fireworks, here's a few surefire conversation-starters:

1. Is there a God?
2. Abortion: Should it be legal?
3. So how's that Iraq War going?
4. Got any rock lyrics you feel like sharing?
5. When did Reason jump the shark?

Also welcome: movie reviews, inspirational poetry, stories about wrapping Roy Orbison in clingfilm, stories about wrapping Roy Lichtenstein in clingfilm, recipes, threadjacks, patriotic commentary, anarchist rants, and ruminations on the career of Ned Beatty. See you tomorrow.
