Happy 4th of July everyone. Hope it’s a peaceful one, free of trouble, strife and rain. Even as a sometime-cynic and generally critical person, and despite all the problems we all have with it, I can safely say that I’m damn happy to be living in this country.

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists – Shake the Sheets (Buy It)
Patton Oswalt – America, the Retarded Trust-Fund Kid (Buy It)
Stevie Wonder – He’s Misstra Know-It-All (Buy It)
Spirit – America, the Beautiful/The Times They Are A’Changin’ (Buy Spirit music)
