I believe we should always have the day after the Fourth of July an official holiday. Reason is, the idiots firing up fireworks, even though it’s illegal, until all hours on the Fourth. Sure, they love their country too? Anyway, it’s O-Dark 30 and I’ve been trying to sleep since several hours ago so that I can do a decent job at work tomorrow. Can’t pinpoint where the bangs are coming from so even the police are worthless in this case. Happy Independence!
