wow. I learned something.

Did I know this and loose it through old age?

Last night listening to Obama's Speech (and crying). He said as we have done for 221 years. I immediately did the math 2008 - 1776 that's more than 221 years. So today I finally looked it up. The constitution was ratified in 1787. Duh.

And that Bill of Rights thing that the churchgoers are pooping all over these days wasn;t ratified until 1791!

I remember him saying that number. I didn't take the time to stop and do the math. Glad you pointed that out.
