A Belated Fourth of July Post

It isn't just on the Fourth of July
that boats in marinas all over Puget Sound
hoist the Stars & Stripes.



But today's a nice day
for a reflection on freedom

and constitutional rights

separation of church and state

and the liberty inherent in being able to
express divergent views without being shot
or "disappearing" or being tortured
or having your blog shut down.
