Chuck Brooks column: Fourth of July holiday is filled with traditions


Are you kidding me? July 4? The last time we met, I was saying goodbye to the school year and hello to summer, but now it’s July 4 already? What the heck?

We best be moving along with all the important stuff you’ve missed! For example, for three weeks now, I haven’t heard the sound of an alarm clock. Not once! Amazing! I’ve seen a couple of movies in the theaters. X-Men and Edge of Tomorrow. Both get my stamp of approval.
