The Saturday Picture Show for the Fourth of July, 2015

Mexican piñata makers are working overtime to meet the demand for papier-mâché likenesses of an oafish American figure whose boorishness trumps anything I've ever seen.
 John Adams had it right - light up the sky with celebration!
 This is what we celebrate.  It makes nice reading, if you have time.
There is nothing that says "Baltimore" like a pile of steamed crabs, some corn, and a beer or two.
The classic album cover for this week is this unforgettable Springsteen collection from 1984.
 Tonight at 8 on PBS - the annual "A Capital Fourth" celebration.  Songs, prose and fireworks, right on the TV for you!
We recommend Ted 2 for those of you who like to laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh.
This is America: the annual Towson MD Fourth of July parade thunders past the County Courts Building where I worked for many a year, sometimes during the parade!
