Edmund. 25 year old Bostonian. Third year law school student and a degree holder in American/Legal History. Lover of fine art, literature, and sports. Ardent supporter of the free market and individual liberty. I admire those who build and discover things, both physical and intellectual.

My title comes from this line: "...a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

 

Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston you’re my home
