    Maggie McNeill also has a thoughtful esssay on “Independence Day.”

    “…the 4th of July is now a memorial rather than a celebration, and the Spirit of ‘76 is nothing but a ghost.”

    Thanks to Wendy and Maggie.

    Great article by Wendy. I have Havel’s book but I bogged down reading it. But he’s right about his example, the greengrocer. I wrote something along the same lines although it doesn’t get to the bottom of things like Havel does:
