Celebrating Independence (And A Long Weekend)

Happy 4th of July! In honor of Uncle Sam’s birthday, The Capital Spectator will refrain from discussions of finance, economics, and otherwise engaging in analytical acrobatics… until the long holiday weekend in the US comes to a close. The standard routine commences anew on Monday, July 6. To paraphrase (and slightly modify) an observation by Thomas Jefferson in a letter to James Madison a few centuries ago, a little rebellion relaxation now and then is a good thing.
