Rockets' Red Glare

Another Fourth of July. I think I'm burned out on the holiday. Fireworks became passé more than a decade ago and I'm not feeling the patriotic mojo anymore. It's nice to have the day off from the Rat Race, but it doesn't really feel like a special day anymore, as did when I was a child. Perhaps it's just me becoming older or simply more of a cynic. But the day seems to have become more about the trappings than anything else. Now don't get me wrong, I'm down with barbecues and fireworks and all of that stuff. But it doesn't seem like there's much else to it anymore.
