NPR’s Diane Rehm Show had an interesting segment this morning with Danielle Allen, author of the book “Our Declaration.”  Ms. Allen talked about the importance of punctuation in interpreting the document (a concern I share when drafting documents myself).  As you celebrate this 4th of July holiday, you might like to read the Declaration of Independence, which you can find here:  http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html
