A polarized U.S. celebrates Independence Day

DeShanna Neal's 7-year-old son stopped standing for the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag in school, questioning whether the United States of America really stood for, as the pledge says, "liberty and justice for all."

Here at the junction of Montebello, Monterey Park and East L.A. the not so legal "safe and sane" fireworks put on a free show. However, not hearing as many, so far, compared to years past.

Brittney Griner wrote a letter to President Biden, reading in part, "...as I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I'm terrified I might be here forever."

I've napped most the day away.

A bit hung over from the beer garden last night.
Drank lots of really cheap beer.
Then the amateur fireworks went on in my town till 4am. Then thunderstorms came through bout 5am.
So to recap, I was drunk and only got 3 hours of sleep

I slept in, made lunch for the family and took a nap with cats. We're having ribs and macaroni and cheese. I'm ashamed to say that dinner is from Costco. I like to cook from scratch, but with everything that's going on I just don't have the energy.

Guandians vs Tigers doubleheader on TV today.


Tigers won game 1.


Brisket for dinner and then firworks over Lake Michigan later tonight.

Hoping all the injured people in IL survive the shooting, especially any kids.

Happy 10-year anniversary to the greatest fireworks show in history, when San Diego accidentally shot off 7,000 fireworks at once.

Working in the yard, having hot dogs and potato salad with Mr. Dallymo and the Kid.  Nice day.  Thinking about how a parade went to shiat in the blink of an eye in Illinois and how awful this holiday will be for the survivors forever after.

Grilled out earlier. No other plans beside listening to the explosions later after dark.

Mayo-less.  Delicious.  Parsley and basil from the garden.

Played a bit of Beyond a Steel Sky & took a nap. Will probably play some more later after I work out but right now I'm off to read Coyote Blue.

I'm expecting lots of "booms" this evening. The last three nights there have been scattered booms. My redneckish neighbors have been practicing for the big show. I guess it's just not the 4th of July until someone loses some fingers. Luckily our pets aren't too bothered. The dog is kinda deaf and is fine if she can hide in her crate. The cats don't seem to give a shiat.

Hubby's been cooking all day.  Crustless quiche, big pot of sauce base, then his mom's recipe for "Sunday gravy" and dinner will be pork ragu over rice.

freddyV: Will Ted Cruz blame doors on todays mass shooting?


Ladders.  Today it's ladders, which provide access to rooftops.

It seems to me that it's buildings that are the problem.  We must raze every building to the ground!  Or make them completely transparent, like backpacks!

I ran from a mass shooting today with my two little girls in my arms. We got separated from my wife. We hid behind a car and then sheltered in the apartment of some good Samaritans for 5 hours watching swat teams from the windows. We are all ok but we're angry, very very angry.

Jill and I are shocked by the senseless gun violence that has yet again brought grief to an American community this Independence Day. As always, we are grateful for the first responders and law enforcement on the scene.

I will not give up fighting the epidemic of gun violence.

WGN Investigates has learned Highland Park parade shooting suspect Robert Crimo's online profile includes dark music videos that appear to show him dramatizing the aftermath of a school shooting.

We've also learned his father unsuccessfully ran against Nancy Rotering in 2019.

The only things I might "celebrate" are the Raising Cane's and Culver's being built nearby.

Apparently some of the other northern Chicago suburbs are canceling their Fourth of July events.

So Yess spent the night here, took care of me overnight/today. We talked 'til 1am, got up late, ate a simple brekkie, talked until she left at 5p.

It was the most time we've had together since Covid-19 erupted.
