My what a lovely 4th of July cracker-on-fire!

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Republican Sen. Jesse Helms, a leading conservative from North Carolina who served five terms in the Senate before retiring in 2003, has died, CNN said. He was 86.
Helms, a blunt-talking product of the Old South, was known as “Senator No” for opposing just about anything that obstructed his conservative view of the world.”

“Ding Dong The Witch is dead.
Which old Witch?
The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up -you sleepy head,
rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead.
She’s gone where the goblins go,
Below – below – below.
Yo-ho,
let’s open up and sing
and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong’ the merry-oh,
sing it high,
sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!”

And I hope the agony of his passing was painful and prolonged.
