Happy 4th Of July Reading

I've worked 16 days straight, usually over 10 hours a day, so having today off is a blessed relief.

And it being the Fourth of July makes it particularly blessed. I love the Fourth because I love our founding fathers and the super-human but oh-so-human thing they did 231 years ago. I love flying the flag (which I put up between sentences), and I love celebrating Incredible Wife's birthday today to boot. (She really is a firecracker!)

And this Forth is particularly nice because I can relax with some of the best reading on the Web, the Watcher's Council's weekly pickin's.

This week I was torn between two humorous (to me, anyway) entries, Quote of the Day: Islamophobia Edition and Glasgow Attack! Ready For Leftyblogs! I submitted the former, but ...

Here's all the entries, Watcher's Council self-nominations, their nominations for non-Council best post, and a few self-posted entries. (If you blog, I encourage you to enter, following the rules for the offer of link whorage.)
