Well, everyone, like it says, Happy Birthday to America on this Fourth of July. May the nation know many long and happy centuries to come.
I am quite serious about that. I am, in my own way, an American nationalist. I believe that who we are, as a country, something good, and important. Yes, I suppose, on some weird level, I even believe in American exceptionalism.
And I hope, truly, that we will soon exit this time of troubles, and that under another president, and with a different Congress, we will find our way forward, to greater wisdom, greater achievement, and greater happiness.
Until next time...onward and upward.
