The Two-Way plans to take a three-day weekend to celebrate Independence Day and we hope many of you do too (Friday is a federal holiday, after all; mail will be delivered, but most post offices will close at noon).

Our plan is to pick things up again early Monday morning. But as always, if there's important news that needs to be passed along we'll jump back into the blog.

In the meantime, what better way to get into a patriotic mood than with Morning Edition's traditional reading of the Declaration of Independence?

Oh, and please remember: Be careful with those fireworks!
