This was on The Daily Show last week, but today is Evacuation Day (at least in New York), so I thought I'd save it until now.

It's not just funny, it's inspiring. This is our history. But how many of us knew it?

Besides, Sarah Vowell has a real point here:
"No, I want us to celebrate victory, Washington's triumphant return to the city he lost. Americans are always so excited about the beginning of a war. What if we celebrated how we used to be good at ending 'em?"

Oh wow that's great stuff. I confess to never reading about the suffering in NYC and my dad is a Revolutionary war era expert.
