We all have our July 4th traditions, and obviously they vary. It's pretty safe to say that most people get together with family and/or friends and BBQ. My tradition is watching the movie "Independence Day." I just love the story line: a black man and a Jew save the world. Oh yeah.
My kids and I watched the movie this morning, before the day officially started, and unbeknownst to me, the DVD I own has the uncut version. While longer, the uncut version versus the theatrical release means never getting bored. Even though I only watch it once a year, it's kinda hard to forget the plot and the dialog.
So happy birthday America. As for the space aliens (and you know who you are), watch out. We're gonna get you!
