Happy 4th of July! I am so grateful to be an American, to own a house and to live in a neighborhood surrounded by fine, upstanding citizens. On this red, white and blue corn-eating, beer-drinking holiday, I support everyone’s right to explode fireworks and celebrate this great country’s Independence. God Bless America!
