Happy Independence Day, America!

Good morning.

Today is July 4th or Independence Day in America, so get off the computer and go outside and enjoy the day! Have some barbecue. Have a hot dog, like American Hero Phil Kessel reportedly does. Or doesn't. Drink a cold beverage of choice. Watch some fireworks. (Light some fireworks? Only if you do it safely. If you blow off your hand or go blind, you'll have a harder time reading chowder, and we don't want that.)

And, because we've had a bit of a theme this week with presidential speeches, here's one for today. It has a brighter tone than the last few. Enjoy.
