The 4th

Happy Independence Day from Paperback Writer

Happy Fourth of July, America

". . . the genius of the United States is not best or most in its executives or legislatures, nor in its ambassadors or authors, or colleges or churches or parlors, nor even in its newspapers or inventors — but always most in the common people, south, north, west, east, in all its States, through all its mighty amplitude." -- Walt Whitman, Preface, 1855, to First Issue of Leaves of Grass

  2. Walt Whitman - what you said! Your words ring true now more than ever.

    I hope all is calm at PBW headquarters, that the root canal went well.
