Happy Independence Day!
The latest version of my Fourth of July essay is over at PostPartisan: "A nation defined by politics." As regulars know, I write on the same theme every year on the Fourth.
And that's all from me for this Fourth. Plain Blog HQ moved over the weekend, and I'm spending most of the day trying to get things in order (the toaster must be somewhere, right? Right?). The good news is that most of my baseball books are in their customary place right in front of me...the Giants Media Guides, at least, although the Abstracts are still boxed somewhere, but I can see Curt Flood's book, and the James HOF book, and other goodies. And most of Congress, parties and elections, and theory, but hardly any of presidency, are on the shelves behind me as they're supposed to be -- much easier to write after I've unpacked Fenno, Polsby, and Pitkin. I'll still mostly be over at Greg's place tomorrow...I'd know if I'll even do a links post in the morning, but I'll try to put something up here at some point in the day. Next week should be back to normal around here. I hope.
At any rate, hope everyone is having a great holiday.
