In case you need a refresher on the love square going on with Alex, Maddison, Reggie, and John. Maddison may not be the brightest bulb, but she can still light the room once she warms up.
The fireworks were nice. For a little shit town they put on a nice display. I like watching fireworks on the fourth. It’s one of those things that just doesn’t work on tv. You need to be there. I’m not happy with the state of the nation in general, but I still appreciate the advantages I’ve had having grown up in the U.S. I’ve seen a lot of rights that we took for granted deteriorate over the years though. The intense desire to shout down people who don’t agree with us needs to be resisted. Not only because you have to protect the rights of the worst as much as you protect the rights of the best, but also because when the worst people stay silent it’s much more difficult to counter their actions. People love to talk and if you let them they will tell you exactly what it is they intend to do. You can take that information and use it. So listen.
