Independence Day 2007
This year I was going to post a video file, or an audio file, of a reading of the Declaration of Independence. However, I discover that it is beyond my ability to find a reading in which the Declaration of Independence hasn't been edited, trimmed, or had complete paragraphs left out.
Also, simply finding a reading of the Declaration of Independence which doesn't collapse into a political screed, or rant about "Jesuits", "Freemasons" or other conspiracy favourites is bloody difficult.
So, I post a link to the document itself. Take some time in between the fireworks, the BBQs and the parties to read, and to ponder the reason for this holiday.
Gentle Readers, have a happy and safe Independence Day.
