We’re back, after an unscheduled holiday hiatus. Did you have a good 4th of July? I remember last year: the 4th was on a Tuesday. Therefore, actual Independence Day represented, for many, the fitting finale of a long, exhausting, happy weekend. This year, it was on Wednesday. Try as one might (and I tried hard), it wasn’t easy to sretch the thing into a five-day marathon. I’m looking forward to next year, when it’s on Thursday!
