The Shelf is closed today for election day- and we encourage American citizens everywhere to get out there and exercise your right to vote. And special thanks to all those who came before us who secured that right and special thanks to those men and women who preserve that right today.
You see, boys forget what their country means by just reading The Land of the Free in history books. Then they get to be men they forget even more. Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't, I can, and my children will. Boys ought to grow up remembering that.
