The Fourth of July

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

I hope all readers will have a tremendous Fourth of July holiday with their family and friends, and spend at least a little time reflecting on the sacrifices of those generations before us who have kept this nation free and independent since its founding in 1776.

I don't know how we can possibly get through a Fourth of July without another public service announcement from George Jepsen, crouched behind a blast shield wearing a kevlar vest warning us of the lethal dangers of sparklers, but I'm sure we'll manage.

Our nation is great, and will continue to be so.
