"Twenty-one years ago, Morning Edition launched what has become an Independence Day tradition: hosts, reporters, newscasters and commentators reading the Declaration of Independence." It's not the 4th of July for me unless I have the chance to listen to this reading. And, this year, I didn't get the chance to listen to it live. For some strange reason, they broadcast this reading on July 3, which doesn't seem right. I had to hunt to find the reading since I expected it today. If you'd like to listen, see the pictures of those reading, and read along, here is the link to NPR. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106168024
(I do agree with some of the comments made this year, though. They took Bob Edwards and Red Barber out of the reading this year. I understand going with the current hosts and reporters. I don't understand dropping the history of NPR.)
Happy 4th of July!
