Catching my eye on the Fourth of July, 2006

by Dave Schuler on July 4, 2006

Lots of bloggers are posting the Declaration of Independence today—a worthwhile thought. Some others have posted a few things that have caught my eye.

  • James Joyner of Outside the Beltway fisks the Declaration of Independence.
  • Callimachus of Done With Mirrors posts about the other Founders, the ones who haven’t made the history books. If I’m any judge, he’s given us a tale from family history; if not his family then certainly ours.
  • Mark Safranski of ZenPundit posts Lincoln’s Fourth of July address from 1863. I don’t know that I’ve ever read it before.
  • Bull Moose posts an appropriate thought from Theodore Roosevelt’s inaugural address.
  • John Donovan of Argghhh! posts an impudent but fitting study in flags and fireworks.
  • Neptunus Lex posts a reflection on the things that divide us and what should unite us.
  • Dan Berczik of Bloggledygook has rounded up a collection of quotes about America: “some positive, some negative, some humorous for us to read and perhaps ponder.”
  • The Dissident Frogman salutes our Independence Day with a great Flash presentation.

I may post others as I run across them. If you’ve found anything of special interest, put a link in the comments.
