Happy 4th!

Just watched the winning runners in the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta run by my new back patio. Later I'll join friends on the edge of town, at a place overlooking the city, to enjoy a cookout and towatch the various fireworks displays. Then back to work unpacking and settling in!

In the meantime, some interesting items:

A reminder of what it's all about: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

From Daily Kos diary, "Read Between the Lines: Rove is in Trouble."

From Yahoo News, a piece on moderate/progressive Christians--since when was God pro-war and pro-rich?

From Yahoo News, U.S. undertakes another preemptive strike, declares war on Tempel 1.
