Happy Fourth of July
One of the airlines ran a great commercial during the height of the Bicentennial celebrations in 1976: Ben Franklin and George Washington peer out the window of an airliner in flight and gaze down at the country they helped create.
Back then I wondered what they would think about how we handled things. I'm still wondering.
Let's raise a glass to the men and women who, two hundred thirty-one years ago, made us possible and toast better days ahead.
