Happy 4th . . .
. . . from the peaks of the Rockies. I am currently on a det away from home but hopefully will still find a way to celebrate. And, while everyone gathers around their grills and coolers full of beer, take a minute to remember those Americans deployed to war zones overseas, who don't have pools to relax in or cold beer to quench their thirst. They don't get a day off, and the only fireworks they're likely to see are those lobbed at them by the enemy. Remember that it's the perpetual sacrifice of men and women like these since the birth of our Republic that has kept us free to barbeque and drink in peace and security.
