I prefer my Independence sautéed…
Here in Colonial Williamsburg the Declaration was read by several interpreters and received enthusiastically by the crowd. It’s one of the biggest crowds in Williamsburg in recent years, and my friends say it was very much like a tea party. Lots of flags and patriotic apparel to be seen.
We stopped at the Bakery for cold cider and toasted Independence. Just a wonderful day.
Happy Blessed Fourth!
There’s something there that captures the tea party mindset and the Reagan-revisionist-fantasist-patriot movement that launched and sustains it so perfectly: They’re like people from East Jeebus, Ohio flocking to Disney World to reverently videotape scenes of Real America on Mainstreet, USA. Kinda sad, really.
