Happy 4th of July!

It's time once again to don your most patriotic of red, white, and blue ensembles, pull the tab on the first of many great American beverages, and do whatever else you might happen to do to celebrate America. Unless of course you don't live here, in which case, there's really no need to celebrate.

One of the most American of things is that Star-Spangled Banner, the one everyone butchers at public sporting events because it's so very difficult to sing. The best version, of course, includes zero singing. I'll leave you with the 1969 Woodstock version of Jimi Hendrix putting all other renditions of the national anthem to shame. Happy Fourth, y'all!
