Turns out fireworks are so ephemeral that it's not so easy to get good photos. Here's one from our 4th of July celebration along the Charles that did turn out alright. And I heartily concur with the Globe's assessment of the music performed by the Pops and celebrity guests before the fireworks began. For me, it was simply off the track of what's appealing and appropriate for a patriotic holiday. Much of the pre-fireworks show was stuff I wouldn't even bother to watch on TV and I would prefer that next year's concert follow the Globe's suggestion and reflect American values as represented in our music. Actually the music choreographed to accompany the display of fireworks did do that a little bit. My favorite was watching the skies light up to the sounds of 'Great Balls of Fire'.
