Happy Independence Day, everyone... 8 Years, 4 Months ago  
Today is a day for us to be with our families, our loved ones, and favorite gaming goodies (for those of us with no lives... heh heh).

I hope that you all have a safe, wonderful holiday.

And when you have a minute to yourself, think about what our founding fathers fought against to get us to where we're at today.

Benjamin Franklin was always my favorite of the founding fathers. I loved his depiction in the musical 1776 (I have the DVD).

And if he were alive today, he'd probably be buying Master Maze. 'Nuff said. ;)

Dante -

As a Vietnam Veteran, I thank you for those words. It can be...annoying? - to hear some of the garbage some people quote back and forth on some forums.
I'm glad to see that I'm not the only patriot who haunts DF. And that doesn't just mean American patriots; those of us who live elsewhere and still care about their countries, even as they can admit their countries faults and get past them, are also patriots. And all of you, wherever you live; I salute you as well.

See ya!
