  1. I once wished a summer class a Happy Independence Day and had a flake ask how DARE I be so unpatriotic as to wish them a Happy 'foreign holiday' like Independence Day instead of the patriotic and All-American "4th of July"

  2. A young friend of ours who is now in Beijing reported this morning that her housemates wished her a happy independence day but just to be sure, asked her: wasn't this the day that George Washington helped Will Smith beat the aliens?

  3. It was a strange feeling to be in South Korea on July 4th. For some reason, Koreans treated it just like any other day!

    1. I get the same feeling any time a native country holiday rolls around. But the national summer holiday somehow feels worse because I can never find a decent hot dog...

  4. Is that a hemp flag? Apparently one flew over the US Capitol yesterday. I think we need one for the compound.

    2. Different species (or perhaps subspecies?) of cannabis. Hemp can, of course, be burned, but apparently smoking it is less than satisfying.
