Several of my favorite blogers decided to mark this day by posting the Declaration of Independence. Please read this document whose words remain as poignant and necessary today, as they were 233 years ago. Van, over at blogodidact resurrects Coolidge's inspiring speech of 1926.
Most importantly, enjoy today. As declared in that sacred document, signed on July 4th by the Continental Congress of 1776, mark this day through the pursuit of happiness. Burn some coal, produce CO2, eat and drink to your hear's content, and send a glorious salute into the night sky - that is the place from where our brave forefathers watch over us.
