Happy Independence Day

To our readers, Mark and I wish you a happy Fourth of July!

An independence from Great Britain. And a dependence and reliance on one another, as Benjamin Franklin recognized in his hanging together/hanging separately quip, made at the signing of the Declaration of Independence. (I have privately wondered whether we might find some space for a “Dependence Day” somewhere in the American calendar…below is a book that might give the holiday creators some inspiration.)
