Today at the editor’s glance: Hurricane Elsa was downgraded to a tropical storm. It’ll be crossing Cuba today as it continues to hook north-northwest, heading for the Florida Peninsula’s southwest region by Tuesday morning, and our own region by Wednesday morning. July 4: No parade and fireworks in Flagler Beach again this year but the city, its beaches, businesses and byways are open and still expecting visitors by the throngs. Crazies Alert: A right dishonorable county commissioner, fresh from defaming Flagler Beach Commissioner Eric Cooley, today will attempt to drive customers away from Cooley’s 7-Eleven in Flagler Beach by gathering a flock of fanatics at 10 a.m. across the street under the banner of a political “sermon and rally,” as he calls it, by a Florida congressional candidate and latter-day member of the Inquisition. Show Cooley a little support, go buy a slushy or 10. The Tour de France‘s 9th stage today is another grueling test of climbers, taking the cyclists from Cluses to Tignes in the French Alps. Cluses, a town of 17,000, is the birthplace of the great French historian Fernand Braudel. Tignes got plenty of attention during the winter Olympic Games in Albertville. Euro 2020: No matches until Tuesday’s semi-final between Italy and Spain, but there’s always Wimbledon.

“He declared that he was above all an advocate for American art. He didn’t see why we shouldn’t produce the greatest works in the world. We were the biggest people and we ought to have the biggest conceptions. The biggest conceptions of course would bring forth in time the biggest performances. We had to be true to ourselves, to pitch in and not be afraid, to fling imitation overboard and fix our eyes upon our national individuality. ‘I declare,’ he cried, ‘there’s a career for a man, and I have 20 minds to embrace it on the spot–to be the typical, original, national American artist! it’s inspiring!'”
–From Henry James’s “Roderick Hudson” (1875).
