Happy (belated) Fourth of July!!

As always, each July 4th we re-read the Declaration of Independence and marvel at its majesty, wrought despite its ultimate creation by committee. Despite our many readings, we always wryly note the grievance of "[h]e has created a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance" in light of the massive growth of federal and state governments.

Happy July 4th, and not to be missed on this day is Roger Kimball's July4th essay Thoughts on July 4, America and multiculturalism.
