We're starting the 4th of July on the 3rd

Westword's offices are closed today in honor of the 4th of July. So instead of blogging, The Latest Word staff will be honoring the work ethic that's made this country great by doing absolutely nothing productive. (Exceptions to the rule: Patricia Calhoun and Kenny Be will be publishing at their usual time, which may mean that they're Communists....) Until then, don't follow the example of the clowns in the clip above and do something moronic with fireworks. Come Monday, logging back on will be easier if you still have all your fingers.
