Happy 4th of July

There's something really stirring about listening to the news-readers and commentators on NPR read the Declaration of Independence every 4th of July. If you missed it this morning, click here.
For some Independence Day fun, check out the National Archives' Charter of Freedom exhibit, where you'll find some interesting information about the signers (for example, 24 of the 56 signers were lawyers) [biographical overview], and you can add your signature to the Declaration, remembering that as we do so, "we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." Heady stuff. (Thanks to Rob Robinson for the link to the Stark County Law Library Blog, which got me to the Moritz School of Law's legal information blog site and the National Archives.)
