Happy Rhode Island Independence Day!

Today, in 1776, Rhode Island declared independence from Great Britain, a full two months before the rest of the colonies got around to it. If you're in the Boston area, I'll be having some people over at 10 pm tonight to raise a glass (of coffee milk, of course) in honor of this important day in history.
God Save Rhode Island!
