Happy 268

John Hancock, the first man to sign the Declaration Of Independence, was born on this date in 1737. It was a dangerous thing to do, going against the King of England, and he wrote his name quite large. A brave man.

Seeing as how we are now faced with the dangerous task of going against yet another King George, I think it would be interesting to install a tachometer at Mr. Hancock's final resting place to see how fast he's spinning.
