This is the weekend that kicks off the summer season in the US. All the hub bub and stress of plans well laid months ago will play out this weekend. Planes will be full. Highways will be full. And if everything goes as planned, stomachs will be filled with food fresh off barbecues coast to coast.
Yes, another happy break from all the drudgery and everyday lives we all deal with most of the year.
Tomorrow, parades will break out. Moms and Pops will corral their broods and line Main Streets everywhere. They will watch high school bands and old men stuffed into old uniforms doing their best to walk upright. They will witness America
In the meantime, Arlington Cemetery is running out of room.
