The Fourth is coming up fast. So, here's some classic Shep

Cool cynicism runs up against patriotism. One of his best stories. Click to listen, right click to download.

"There are muddle-headed souls who would tell you over and over that man is a basically peaceful and quiet creature, destined  ultimately to while away his golden days strumming lutes, penning odes, and watching birds. I have never yet witnessed a turtle preparing to ignite the portenteous fuse of a cherry bomb. No, it remained for man to concoct black powerder from the innocent elements of the earth and ultimately split the atom, all in pursuit of that healing balm -  the thundering report."

Another Classic Shep Fourth of July story involves fireworks and near disaster: Ludlo Kissel and the Dago Bomb that Struck Back
