Happy 4th of July!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July.

A great time to reflect on our country, and remember that even though we may not always agree, we are all part of a great nation. After all, the Founding Fathers all rarely agreed on everything. If they had all thought alike, we wouldn’t have ended up with some of the great institutions, rights and protections we have today, since our country grew up out of a reconciliation between different ideas of how the people should be governed.

Be safe and have fun. I know I will. We’re having a barbecue, and we bought some pretty decent fireworks. As Jim Gaffigan pointed out, food and blowing stuff is just what the Founding Fathers would have wanted.

  1. I just found your personal blog. I have to follow you, a progressive in Utah! That’s like following a Teaparty member in San Francisco.
