Daily Bread for 12.7.15 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

Monday in town will be cloudy with a high of forty-two. Sunrise is 7:12 and sunset 4:20, for 9h 08m 27s of daytime. The moon is a waning crescent with 14.5% of its visible disk illuminated.

It’s the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, killing thousands and plunging America and Britain into a Pacific war.

On this day in 1787, Delaware leads the way:

In Dover, Delaware, the U.S. Constitution is unanimously ratified by all 30 delegates to the Delaware Constitutional Convention, making Delaware the first state of the modern United States.

Less than four months before, the Constitution was signed by 37 of the original 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention meeting in Philadelphia. The Constitution was sent to the states for ratification, and, by the terms of the document, the Constitution would become binding once nine of the former 13 colonies had ratified the document. Delaware led the process, and on June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the Constitution, making federal democracy the law of the land. Government under the U.S. Constitution took effect on March 4, 1789.
