Good friend (and resident firebug) Jenny LoCascio threw a holiday barbecue last night, which eventually turned into a fireworks display once Mike showed up with the mortars. You don't need city-sponsored fireworks when you know Mike.
As pretty as the display turned out, the highlight for me came when Mike toasted Independence Day by quoting Jeff Spicoli:
"What Jefferson was saying was, Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves - pronto - we'll just be bogus too!"
You know what? In the context of the holiday, it seemed very relevant.
