Some folks are really irked by the fact that Independence Day falls on a Wednesday this year. Like, really irked. In fact, last week I happened to catch someone behind me in the grocery store line remark: “Why even have it this year?”

Depart from me, you evildoers.’ “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.

And it collapsed and was completely ruined...”
