We love America so much we revamped our Web site on Independence Day.

As you may have noticed, our Web site looks a little different today. That's because we've added a new blog and expanded our books and culture pages. Be sure to visitVerdicts, a blog about books and culture, featuring Frank Oveis, Lauretta O'Connor, Paul Lakeland, Mollie Wilson O'Reilly, and several other Commonweal contributors (their names will populate the contributors list at Verdicts as soon as they start posting). While you're there, check out Anthony Domestico'sinteresting post on Terrence Malick, director of the beguiling filmTree of Life. And then pop over to our new books page, which will feature regular Web-only reviews, in addition to our regular print reviews. We're having some technical difficulties with the books and culture pages at the moment, but we'll work them out soon, promise. In the meantime, let us know what you think. And don't forget to bookmark Verdicts.

Grant Gallicho joined Commonweal as an intern and was an associate editor for the magazine until 2015.
