Happy Birthday, my beloved country.

What of George M. Cohan, of "Over There" fame? Doesn't he warrant a Happy Birthday, sure does where I come from.

Absolutely, Dan. We're watching "Yankee Doodle Dandy" today!

If you add George, you have to add Stephen Foster, who was also born on the 4th of July. But I'm all for it, although George and Stephen were certainly profound in a different way.

"Send my regards to Broadway, remember me to Harold Square....."

Absolutely great stuff!
