Google Logos Takes a Day Off For a company that has recently celebrated such holidays as Escher's birthday, Valentine's Day and Father's Day, Google certainly doesn't seem to be very eager to celebrate the 4th of July. (Witness the barren homepage.) Oversight, or slight?

Doesn't look so barren to me.

You sure you're not getting a cache or something?

Well, okay, it's not that bad.

In Canada, we get shuttled to

And then, we have to go to to escape the Canuckity.

To take it further off-topic, does anyone know a way to get to sites like from places that don't celebrate July 4? Preferably without paying for anonymizer?

I couldn't believe that a web site that looked as fertile as the Tennessee River Valley could bear no logos, but the doctor explained that its insides were a rocky place, where my seed could find no purchase.
