Independence Day

With revolutions in Syria, Brazil, and Turkey (perhaps Portugal as well) and a coup d'etat in Egypt, and with a few legal steps forward and a few back in their own country, Americans will celebrate today once more with grilled meat and fireworks. And some music.

Via Greg Mitchell, the "4th of July", covered by Robert Earl Keen and the original by Dave Alvin.

Via AMERICAblog, an a capella rendition of the national anthem, by Lady Gaga at last weekend's Pride Rally in New York.

And last, what would this blog be without a cartoon.

Here's a good list of celebrations in Houston, Galveston, and surrounding towns this weekend.
