I just received a mailing list blast headlining the "Fourth of July" so i clicked to your blog looking for a place to leave comments. To my not-so-much suprise, I found that even the Southwest Manager of Customer Communication and Corporate Editor is blogging about the same 'Fourth'.
I'm pretty sure that Independence Day is the correct and proper name for the upcoming holiday. Let's not forget what we are celebrating here.
It would be nice if you would use your mailing list to remind people of that. And tell your marketing people to get a little more creative than to jump on board with the same old underinformed colloquialisms that everyone continues to schlep around. Wouldn't Independence go well with "you are now FREE to move about the country"??!!!!
In fact, the only mention of "Independence" in this entire blog string is in the name of a song. At least David Byrne knows what he's talking about.
Happy Independence Day. I'm glad I'm free to leave comments like this.
