A silver lining of the ongoing depression is that Chicago canceled its Fourth-of-July fireworks entirely, so I will not be looted to pay for someone else’s juvenile entertainment.

Incidentally, notice the conservative commenting on the article who predictably complains that the fireworks were really canceled because Mayor Rahm Emanuel hates America. This seems to be a common mentality among many conservative tea-party types: They’re opposed to the “elites” in government not because the elites steal and murder but because the elites supposedly do not love the government enough and are not militaristic and warmongering enough. Some great hope for liberty they are.
