It truly is Independence Day.
I can hear it all around the property as I sit on the porch here at work, that distinctive pop and crackle of fireworks. Pretty sure I heard some rifle, pistol and shotgun fire too. Given that warfare is how we got this holiday, as long as they aren't just popping rounds off into the air and are using a proper backstop then I say - go nuts. I could listen to that sound all night long, it's the Sound of Freedom.
