PostUS Independence Day Greetings (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 07/04/18 5:29 am)
Happy Fourth of July to you and all US WAISers!
JE comments: One thousand thanks, Eugenio! It will be a subdued Fourth at WAIS HQ--no cookouts, no invitations to other people's food and drink. Peace and quiet is/are never a bad thing.
July 4th Greetings from the Mother Country

Happy and safe Independence Day to all US WAISers. Keep paying the taxes you owe us from 1776 or we shall have to send in the bailiffs!
JE comments: John, you are too kind! My five minutes of Googling yielded no reliable figure for our delinquent tax bill to Mother England, but I'd guess several trillion. In exchange, though, we colonials expect a few trillion for infrastructure, public health, and defense.
