Declaration of Independence

Every July 4th since 1777, the Declaration has been read from the balcony of the Old State House in Boston. gnomi and I have gone for the past two years, and we're planning to be there again this year. You can learn a little more about it here:

If anyone wants to join us, please feel free to do so. A few notes, though. They start the reading at 10 AM on the dot, and it's very crowded, because there's a parade beforehand. Also, the reading doesn't really take until 2:30 PM; there are other events afterward. Expect to be there from about 9:30-10:30 or so.
