“America the Beautiful”
Face it: Our National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,”is the Hummer of national anthems: clunky and hard to sing, a paean to war with the bombs and the rockets and whatnot, and hopelessly out of date. A more fitting tribute would be “America the Beautiful,” written by Katharine Lee Bates in 1895, which pays homage to the natural splendor and geographic diversity of our country.

What better fit for local talent on the Fourth of July than three best friends who have red, white and blue hair?

Nancy Stafford is a former beauty queen and a successful actress, and though she has turned many a head, Nancy has never allowed Hollywood to turn hers. In fact, Stafford has walked away from lots of big time acting jobs. The reason? Her high standards and abiding faith in God.

It is true that he has fathered at least 24 kids by at least 11 different women (and has no hope of meeting child-support obligations), but he is hardly Tennessee’s most prolific.

• Think about our military men and women — they’re the perfect example of action behind the idea. They’ve chosen to be the most patriotic among us; they chose to put the country in front of their own lives. The work and the sacrifice they do on a daily basis is completely inspired by their patriotism and dedication.

• One of my favorite parts about being an American is the potential that exists here. It’s pretty exciting to live in a country where we enjoy a lot of freedoms that we actually take for granted. I’m pretty excited about living in a country where there aren’t bombs going off everyday.

I’ve never cooked with a shield and sword before, and eating at Zali Mongolian Grill is probably as close as I will come. Mongolian warriors used their shields as cook tops, a server tells me, which is why any Mongolian restaurant has a round grill. Unlike any other buffet I’ve been to, Zali provides uncooked meats and vegetables for selection.

Okay — it’s the Fourth of July, so you likely will have hot dogs and hamburgers in your system at some point over the next few days. This is good news for me because hot dogs and hamburgers figure prominently in the news for the Triad’s culinary scene, sparse though it may be.

Reflections at a waterpark
Yesterday I saw something I had never seen before — and that’s saying something, for I am a man who has seen much. What I saw was a barstool, a visual subject with which I am intimately familiar. But this one was different. It was made of bamboo — again, no big thing for me. I’ve been to Vegas. What made this one different was that it had a warning sign taped to it: “250 lb. Limit.”
