Independence Day

The genius of the United States is not best or most in its executives or legislatures, nor in its ambassadors or authors or colleges, or churches, or parlors, nor even in its newspapers or inventors, but always most in the common people.

--Walt Whitman

  4. Gadzooks! That was very cute. We are going to see the fireworks tonight in Columbus.

    Honestly, I hate Independence Day, but it's my duty as a father to impare the hearing of my children whenever possible.

  6. My favorite part is when the dragon-shaped firework swooped down and scared everyone. But then it exploded in a big cascade and everyone cheered. Brilliant movie!
