HOLIDAYS: Happy 4th of July 2007!
Today is a momentous day - The Fourth of July, a major holiday in the the USA, for it was the day that back in 1776, the US declared independence from Great Britain. And ever since, the USA has been a major force for good in the world. Not perfect, but it's hard to imagine a disaster to which the US didn't send aid or a distressed people who haven't seen some of their ranks find solace upon the shores of America. My relatives, for one, found solace upon these shores and have prospered ever since. I can also never forget the role the USA played in defeating Hitler's Third Reich... and rebuilding Europe afterwards... or the role the USA played in defeating Communism along with the great distresses it visited upon my many Russian and Ukrainian friends. For all of these things I am profoundly grateful. Thanks, USA!
Happy Fourth of July to all my American readers!
And as a special treat for my male readers, I am including some patriotic "gratuitous babes" as an extra way was of saying "Go USA!"
