A few years ago I found myself at a Miami Heat game because my nephew was on the coaching staff of the visiting team. I never let that nephew know, but throughout the game, my eyes were riveted on James, and on the astonishing and quite beautiful thing that is LeBron playing basketball.

I became a fan, watched the games and – in the most innocent hero-worship kind of way – developed a school girl crush on the guy. Unrequited apparently.

So LeBron’s off to Cleveland. . . . LeBron who?

Every July 4 . . .

. . .  we celebrate our independence. Because 238 years ago a brave group of revolutionaries threw off a colonial power. That’s something that has happened around the world many times – both before and since. But . . .

. . . I think our greater achievement is this: for 225 years we have maintained a continuity of government (even in war), peacefully transferring power (that one’s just since Washington to Adams, so 214 years) over and over . That’s a testament to the brilliance of our constitution and our continuing respect for it. Good for us!

Well this is a new one . . .
