Happy American Independence Day

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

On this day, in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. It had been voted for, by all thirteen delegations, two days previously.

Also on this day, in 1976, Israeli commandos struck a blow for freedom by rescuing nearly all the passengers and crew of an Air France plan hijacked by Palestinian Islamofascists. The terrorists were held up at the Entebbe airport in Uganda.

Today is also the birthday of my friend Doug Berry, a veteran of the United States Army. Thanks Doug, and happy birthday.
