That ship up there is interesting. Perfect picture since Independence Day is almost here. I was thinking the same thing.

Oh, I love this! Is that John Adams doing the reading, or Ben Franklin? I ask because we're well into the HBO John Adams series and that guy (he's probably say, Tom, dude, you've done it again!) looks like Paul Giamatti (who played Adams)...

Anyway, this picture is just terrific -- I really like all the paper crumpled up on the floor, although I don't think Jefferson woudl have been that messy. Maybe it was Adams's mess.
