The overheard sentiment is, alas, an interesting and serious one: the idea that indy-day has traditionally represented independence for few.

Perhaps we're more comfortable with the idea when it's been reported and pre-chewed into patinated, conde-nast-approved, fact-checked, intellectual bits. So, to turn our laughs into furrowed brows, i'd like to offer an interesting piece in the new yorker (ah, our blankie/grail) whose dek reads: "When America won its independence, what became of the slaves who fled for theirs?"
