Independence Day?

Look, I like fireworks as much as anybody (although I shouldn’t–they aren’t good for the environment), but I have to say I’m not very comfortable with the July 4 emphasis on militarism and American superiority.

When the rights of, and respect for, women, gay people, immigrants, minorities, people from other cultures, those living in poverty, and many other groups are compromised, it seems we could find better ways to spend July 4 than patting ourselves on the back.
