Virginia Burgesses

Half a decade short of four centuries ago today (July 30 in the Julian Calendar), the first elected legislature in America – the Virginia House of Burgesses – convened. In this year of 225 years since the outbreak of the French Revolution and the entry into force of the U.S. Constitution.

On a personal note, BTW, every time I do such a foolish thing as to taste an M&M, or any other form of chocolate for that matter, I spit it out.
