It’s the 4th of July weekend! It’s a chance for Americans to get drunk and blow up stuff. Hot dogs and gunpowder.

And with that annually recycled gag, David Letterman kicks off the holiday weekend. Have a safe one.

If you happen to be at the Independence Day concert Tuesday night on the Mall in DC – or are one of the 37 people watching on PBS – watch for the musical wife singing back up for Elmo (and others).

She’ll be the petite brunette sweating like a pig. :-)
