I spent my Fourth of July morning participating in a parade, on behalf of a certain presidential candidate. That in itself was a celebration of the freedoms of America.

But the true joy was that I got to drive the golf cart in said parade, and my passanger was one of Grafton county's few remaining Pearl Harbor survivors. 

That was a true celebration of the freedoms of America. 

God Bless!

Fourth of July is third on my list of favorite holidays, after Chirstmas and Easter. I'm assuming this is because I'm hoplessly militantly nationalisitc. 

Regarlds of why, I'm having a great holiday. The space shuttle went off today, a great reminder of how great this country is, and how, despite setbacks, we can still overcome obstacles, and maintain the world's foremost space program. 

And, because I'm hoplessly a history dork, let us remember the brave, courageous group of individuals who, on a summer in foggy, fetid, fuming, filthy, Phildelphia, told the whole world that we were no longer servents of King George, but we were, and ought to be, free and independant states. We hold these truths to be self-evident, they said, that all men are created equal. Strange as it may seem, that was the first time in history that anyone had bothered to write that down.
