Hearing Richard Brookheiser talk about Jefferson and Madison on cspann; reading some Eric Hoffer; watching 1776 and Yankee Doodle Dandy; eating and talking with friends and neighbors while watching fireworks from a neighbor's roof. Hope everyone has a Great 4th!
Thanks to the Founders and all the "ordinary" Americans who helped build this country and keep it going!!!
