JOHN'S FAREWELL ADDRESS TO THE NATION

Peter Zenger! Now there was a man. He had a press and a plan. Hey, that rhymes. "A man, a plan, a canal. Panama!" Not quite a palindrome, but you kind of think as you're writing it, maybe it is. No, wait, it is! It's the most famous palindrome in the English-speaking world! I don't know why I thought I was getting it wrong.

That said, my advice is to avoid any foreign entanglements. No "Imperial entanglements," as Obi Wan said coyly. That always bugged me, actually: his needless coyness.

That said: adieu.
