Well, our country has made it through another year. Some people are happy, others are upset, but that's always the case. Every now and then I like to go back through old newspapers and read about the burning events of the day that turned out to be less than a footnote in the big scheme of things.
The lesson is that in politics, there's always something to argue about.
And yet for all that, here we are: arguably the most free, most prosperous society in the history of the world.
The Fourth of July is a great time to reflect on all the good things we have. We're not perfect, but who is?
Happy Birthday, America!
