Happy 4th of July !!

A quick report (11:00PM): Boston celebrates 4th of July in style, again. The Boston Pop under Keith Lockhart performs at the Half-Shell on the Esplanade for a crowd of half a million with music that combines country and pop, the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky complete with canon firing and church bell ringing, Puccini's Nessun Dorma from Tourandot, John Philip Sousa's Star and Stripes Forever - just to name a few. The event is MC'd by Craig Ferguson. And the fireworks are simply breathtaking that light up the dark summer sky with spectacular reflection from the Charles River.

It is a great city, Boston. Please come and visit.

Incidentally, Red Sox 6, Yankees 4, today.
