the Declaration

Declarationimage_1 Apparently ever since July 4, 1776, Americans have been celebrating the Declaration of Independence with cookouts, parades, and fireworks (or so I heard on the radio).  Something else that they did 230 years ago was read the actual document.  So somewhere between the sales, the watermelon, and the rockets' red glare, consider reading the actual words of the Declaration of Independence as you celebrate tomorrow.  It is, after all, about as famous and important as legal writing gets.  (You can double click on the image to the left for a larger view.)
