Happy 4th of July!
It’s a hazy, lazy day on Cape Cod. I’m enjoying a quiet holiday with my family, minus one son who couldn’t make it home this year. Normally we go to a barbecue followed by a fireworks display, but we decided, after about 20 years of that tradition, and because the event has become crowded in recent years, that we would enjoy a private lobster dinner at home for a change. Maybe we’ll even watch the live t.v. coverage of the Boston Pops performing on the Esplanade this time.
I’ve been writing this Substack for more than two years, which means I have a couple of years of fairly serious 4th of July posts from years past available for anyone interested enough to check them out. This year I’m taking a break from that tradition as well, writing just enough to wish a Happy Independence Day to all of you who celebrate it. I expect to be back writing on my usual weekly schedule again this Sunday. In the meantime, please stay safe and remember to celebrate not only the nation’s birth but also the beautiful, not-yet-fully-realized ideal of liberty and justice for all. It is the birthright of every American, without exception.
