Yoo--hoo anybody home? In case you hadn't heard: It's Fourth of July !!! We are all in Fourth of July mode.

Is this blog planning on going into a 24-hour Fourth of July format?

Or perhaps, Althouse will be shutting down to honor the holiday.

In any case, it's Fourth of July, and I'd expect a Constitutional Law professor would have something to patriotic to say!

Oh Maxine, you silly goose!

One can never have something "to[o] patriotic to say."

Patriotically Yours,

Bissage.

P.S. My flag's already hanging out!!!

Maxine: I'm trying to hint to people to "fly" the flag.

(But by golly, there's no more patriotic insect for the Fourth of July than the fly, . . ., er, . . ., except maybe the mosquito.)

Double A I know you were an art major in college and you are a 60s music fan so you might like this and might want to post a blog on it.

It's pure genius. Watch it for the kick at the end.

I doubt that Ann is a fan of speed art, but then, she probably hasn't seen JAO at work. I first saw her at the Art Car parade in Minneapolis, where she did her work on the back of a truck, rolling down Lyndale Avenue.

Here she is in a calmer environment:

I liked the parade performance better.

And here's more examples of her work, if you care.

Nope. The honeybee is.
