Memphis' Fourth of July Was a Blast ... For a While

I love the Fourth of July. It's a holiday with something for everyone -- good food, beer, a day off, and explosives. And I love the rituals -- heading across the bridge to buy sparklers and bottle rockets, grilling hamburgers, swimming, and watching fireworks against a starry sky ...

Flyer editor Bruce VanWyngarden's Memphis Fourth of July celebration left something to be desired.
