Your Friday Fix: Born on the Fourth of July


So you can all pretty much figure that this Friday’s mix is all about patriotism – in all its various forms and permutations.  Which is more than appropriate considering the state of affairs these days.

I purposefully do not get political on this blog very often, not for a lack of interest, but frankly because others do it a lot better than I ever could.  I have very little patience for people who do not keep up with current affairs, or who don’t vote, or like to use the blanket excuse “they’re all crooked, so what’s the point?”

That’s a cop-out and those of you who say it know it.

Anyway, onto the music. Enjoy the fireworks show…
