Samuel Adams Says Have A Great Fourth Of July

Here we see the patriot Samuel Adams telling you to have a great Fourth Of July.

Click here to learn more about Samuel Adams.

What Mr. Adams is pointing to in the painting, is a map telling him where all the best fried clam shacks are, and, which way to go to the fireworks tonight.

The artist was John Singleton Copley.

Joe Kennedy Forgets Me—Paul Revere Still Dead

A brief break from my Summer Solstice blogging break—

I took the tour of the Massachusetts State House this afternoon. As I left the building I walked past former Congressman Joe Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy is a son of Robert Kennedy.

I attended a fundraiser for Mr. Kennedy at the Kennedy Compound in 1992. Joe was all smiles when I was writing him a check.

But today? Hell—He walked by like he did not recall who I was.

We did make eye contact though. Mr. Kennedy had an expression on his face like I saw on Gene Simmons of Kiss at the Cincinnati airport last year. I looked at Mr. Simmons and he looked back at me like someone who was used to being recognized but wanted to be left alone.    

I left both Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Simmons alone.

I also saw the graves of Paul Revere and Samuel Adams today. I was hoping at least one of them would rise from the grave and lead me on a ghostly tour of Boston.

No such luck though.
