Well, not for me. I'm at work, on a magazine deadline week, so it's very busy, but for my American friends I guess this means lots of fireworks, parades, and a spacecraft crashing into a comet, in true American style. I've been to the NASA Deep Impact web site
and I still don't understand the point of spending all that money to do this.
Meanwhile, the irony that the American people are the least independent and free
than they have been for decades is not lost on me.
