In Congress...

Newly polished Underwood Portable 4 bank in action declaring independence

July 4's the perfect day to read Jefferson's revolutionary 1776 declaration - which I have done for the first time, and type as much as would fit comfortably in a typecast. Full version with oppressions listed here.

As you type, you can hear Morgan Freeman reading it out loud - I wonder if he ever has? There's a certain poetry behind the gravitas.

Happy 235th Birthday USA, you don't look a day over 234!


  1. Thanks for this!! It's always looked great written but I think the typewritten looks adds a little something! ;u)

  2. Nicely done! And yeah, Morgan Freeman reading it out aloud would bring tears to the eyes. Although there was a time when it would have been James Earl Jones's gig.

  3. Now I have to see how it would look in Oliver Printype!
