    “…a group of second class citizens…”

    I can’t be bothered to check out all the signers’ biographies but here’s one familiar “second class citizen”, John Adams before 1776. “Graduate of Harvard (Lawyer). Admitted to Massachusetts Bar, 1761; Elected to Massachusetts Assembly, 1770. http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/signers/adams_j.htm

    I’d understood them to have more in common with today’s 1%ers and little in common with what we consider middle and lower class Americans trying to avoid personal bankruptcy.

    Happy 4th.

    I hope that Barbara Gittings and others are still around to witness the enormous changes that have come to our community, via the brave ground work that they laid down so many years earlier.
