I live about a block away from the border of Brookline, which just celebrated its 300th anniversary Sunday evening. When I first heard the fireworks, I thought maybe we were getting shelled by Connecticut. Apparently they were something to behold, too:

Only 99 years till the next centennial, so don’t let those high taxes and weird parking rules get you down.
