You should be out eating barbecue, drinking beer, and showing children the wonders of those jacked-up fireworks you bought across the state line that are in fact completely illegal in your state. But that's what America is about: the freedom to blow your hand off in front of horrified youngsters you happen to be related to, and soothing the pain with a nice, cold Miller High Life on the way to the E.R.
Wherever you are on this holiday weekend, we hope your national anthem provider does it just like this cop did.
Enjoy your 4th. We'll see you on Wednesday.
