Happy (Belated) Birthday, Maine

You know there's a lack of general appreciation for Maine's independence from those dreaded begrudgingly appreciated Massholes when even an ardent Maine-phile such as myself neglects a timely notice of the event.

Nevertheless, raise a mug of Pine State Coffee (4 ounces of hot coffee, 2 ounces of Allen's, 2 ounces of heavy cream, and a dollop of whipped cream) to this state's 189th year of existence--even if you are four days late.

- John C.L. Morgan
