Liberty or Death

I wish you a glorious annual celebration of the Declaration of Independence!  We have liberty, but let us remember with all the due that which was wagered in the cause of liberty: a man's sacred honor.

"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall hang separately"
~Ben Franklin

Let us also keep in mind that this is the day two of the most famous patriots passed fifty years after having signed the hollowed document.  Jefferson and Adams both died on July 4, 1826.  An occasion for sober minds this may seem, we should by all means imbibe grog and be thankful for our sacrosanct liberty.  The Modern Traditionalist and I created a beverage to commemorate this noble day in honor of the Father of these States United, George Washington.  The concoction is named for his solemnity of manner, the Gravitas.  More on that back to celebrating.
