Holiday texts

On certain holidays, I like to read or meditate on something related to the holiday, perhaps an MLK speech, a JFK biography, an essay on Christmas, etc. In modern America, all holidays are designed to trigger an impulse in you to buy something, but that is surely unnecessary in nearly all cases.

Here are the Federalist Papers, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, if you feel like a little reading on the Fourth of July. We live in a great nation: great in its conception, great in its history, and great in its stop-and-start attempts to live up to its own ideals. May we always seek to improve ourselves.
