Happy Independence Day!

For the first time in many years, we’re not going to watch 1776 at my house for the Fourth of July.  We’ve watched it so many times, and can anticipate every scene and almost every line so easily, that it’s become less impactful and a bit boring, even though it’s very well done.  We’ll probably resume watching it again when memory has faded a bit.

But, in honor of Independence Day, I recommend that people read Randy Barnett’s excellent elaboration of the famous beginning of the Declaration over at the Volokh Conspiracy.

Have a safe and happy Independence Day, everyone!
