What IS a borgelnuskie? What an appropriate question to contemplate, coming as it does on July 3rd, one day before the Glorious Fourth, our national natal day. What IS a borgelnuskie? It is a hot summer day at the beach. It is a visit to the art museum with your aunt Annabelle. It is the roar of the crowd carried on the wind from the distant stadium. It is building a model race car in the basement, and being careful not to inhale glue fumes. It is toothmarks in a Number Two Ticonderoga pencil. It is hamsters playing in the rays of the setting sun. What is a Borgenuskie? It is America. And Canada. And northern Mexico. And Puerto Rico. Happy Independence day, Stubby.
