Happy 4th of July

“Neither Pagan nor Mahamedan nor Jew ought to be excluded from the civil rights of the Commonwealth because of his religion.” Thomas Jefferson, quoting John Locke

Hail to the pen and muse of Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence! Hail to those who’ve honored the true spirit of our founding documents, who defended us with arms, who challenged us with nonviolence, and reminded us of our true nature through art and rebellion.


Happy Independence Day! Also, happy belated Canada Day to my neighbors up north.

    And a happy 4th to you as well! As I posted Friday on W&K, a reminder to those of us who like to get our bang on:


    “…please remember our animal companions and familiars don’t much care for the sound of things blowing up… Therefore, they may need some additional stroking and comforting. Also, please practice safe fire magic(k), and be sure to rake up the bits of paper and sticks the next morning. Critters can choke on that stuff, not to mention explosive residue is not food for them anyway…”

    Happy Fourth of July and this time please aim the flare gun away from the sausage factory. (folks in Wisconsin will know what I mean.)
