Happy Independence Day!

To all reading this blog, American or not, a happy U.S. Independence Day to you. Today marks the 231st birthday of the United States. I firmly believe that, no matter what our political leanings, deep down the American people remain united in what we believe

Tomorrow I will be traveling out to McDonald Observatory again, so it may be a few days before my next post.

"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations." -- Abraham Lincoln, 2nd Inaugural Address
