The King of England was roundly denounced as we reread the Declaration of Independence and demanded our freedom once again at the start of Chevy Chase's annual Fourth of July party. Thanks to everyone who participated, including my next door neighbor's kids who stole the show. I think Ana won the award for the most impassioned while Ike brought us home with conviction. Kudos to Linna for making it through the toughest passage.
