Wow, Goodreads hates me
The lesson of the wild raspberries

241 years and counting...

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!
