Design Independence, The Conclusion

The black and white garb worn by this assumed erstwhile jailbird is the height of fashion today, as it was, apparently, in 1950. The cause for her jubilation: the defrosting feature of the fridge. As one who many years ago took a cleaver to the icy innards of an old refrigerator—and, in the process, liberated the freon from its confining coils—I'd say that counts towards the pursuit of happiness.

A jubilant Fourth of July to you all, dear readers.
