Carol and I finished viewing the last episode in HBO's miniseries, John Adams, last night. (Juan had recommended it and Netflix had it.) What a fitting way to end the Fourth of July. The DVD set also has a short piece on the author, David McCullough, which is well worth watching too.
I read McCullough's 1776 with great pleasure, but I had never been able to get into John Adams. This will send me back to it.
