Independance Day

My biggest “fear” on Independence Day is the non-stop noise from neighbors, who love fireworks and each each burn hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars worth of them on, before and after July 4.
But in other places, Belarus for example, people have other fears.

What disturbs me the most, is the ‘normality’ of plainclothes police, who are making arrests of innocent people in the streets. To my eye, they look so clean, so regular, some of them even good-looking.
