Ratz! This July 4 post was my sole offering for the week, but something went wrong …
On our nation’s 242nd birthday, I’m addressing the increasing tide of criticism leveled against Thomas Jefferson. While commended for his accomplishments, he is belittled for being highly flawed, a hypocrite, a racist, perhaps even a rapist.
This latter view was on full display in a June 15 column in the Washington Post. To their credit, my local newspaper, the Columbia (MO) Daily Tribune published my rebuttal. The links below offer both editorials.
Happy Birthday to the marvelous work-in-progress that is the USA!
Happy Birthday to one of its Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson.
There! I feel a little better already!
