As this wonderful three-day holiday continues, it is appropriate to consider some additional sentiments about our country’s early days. Much has been written over the past few days about historical events, and Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal is no exception.

If you are a subscriber to the Journal, this will be redundant, but if you are not I strongly urge you to connect to the link below and read her article “A Cold Man’s Warm Words”:

I find it most interesting to read and experience the depth of reasoning and the foresight our Founders possessed when creating our document of Independence. Contrary to the e-mail information I just posted in the “Founding Fathers” blog, Wikipedia cites that of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention, 35 were lawyers, and the remaining 20 were from a variety of endeavors. You can read the interesting and informative article at:’s_occupations

Your Commander finds it interesting that few of our Founder’s were professional politicians. Now our governments is predominantly served by professional politicians. Maybe that is our core problem.
