Cutting things short today since everybody has the day off because of the holiday. And what a classic holiday it is. I think it'd be nice for everybody to leave a comment on this post explaining what the 5th of July means to you as a patriotic American.

NOTE: In honor of America's declaration of independence from the oppressive British 234 years ago, um, yesterday, enjoy this gallery of pictures from the Miss Universe Australia pageant. USA! USA! USA!
