This Independence Day, remember why

Editor's note: Amid the picnics and barbecues, the parades and the fireworks, we urge our readers to pause and reflect on what it is we Americans are celebrating today. In Tuesday's Signal a columnist suggested we all read the noble words of the United States Declaration of Independence. So today we salute ideals that founded this country with a bold declaration adopted 236 years ago and we proudly reprint that declaration. We have retained the original language throughout, with an apology to our print readers for deleting the long list of specific grievances against King George III.
