July 4 -- on a hammock or stuck at work?
Friday - 7/4/2014, 2:00am EDT
We hope you're reading this from a hammock, surrounded by beautiful or nubile admirers who are feeding you dainties while they grill your lunch. Good for you. A nice little break at the end of the week is always good for your mental health.
And, if today finds you at work, that's good too. Maybe not for you, but certainly for us. Because what you are doing and where you are doing it is probably good for our health, safety and security. Even if we can't see you.
Most media outlets find that readers, listeners and viewers drop off on holidays, which makes sense. So we are saving the good stuff for next week, when lots of us will be back to work. Enjoy today and check it out tomorrow.
Happy holiday. Check this space next week.
