A Happy Fourth

We got a hard rain that has left things soggy, but notwithstanding that, the village is full of strangers and the seawall is lined with anglers. Can you imagine any set of today's putative leaders who would take the moral and financial risk taken by the Founding Fathers in declaring independence from the most powerful country in the world? We're lucky we had men of such fiber to give us our start as a nation. Would that we got such leaders today.
