We hope you’re reading this from a hammock, surrounded by beautiful or nubile admirers who are feeding you dainties while they grill your lunch. Good for you. It is always nice when a stand-alone holiday (like Independence Day or Christmas or New Year’s) falls on a Friday or a Monday. Three-day weekends are good for your mental health.
And, if today finds you at work, that’s good too. Maybe not for you but certainly for us. Because what you are doing and where you are doing it is probably good for our health, safety and security. Even if we can’t see you.
Most media outlets find that readers, listeners and viewers drop off on holidays, which makes sense. So we are saving a real, true-blue July 4th column for tomorrow, July 5, when lots of us will be back to work. Enjoy today and check it out tomorrow. It will make you very proud to be an American.
Happy holiday. Check this space tomorrow. Trust me…
