Thanks Dave, of course this is true - aren't we glad that they slipped up
and allowed such words as 'life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness' into the
canon - not to mention notions of equality..... We have both documents and
a history of struggle towards just society to back us up. Despite Madison,
Harrison, et al, the so called 'masses' have managed to succeed with women's
right to vote, slavery's end, civil rights act, voting rights act, etc.
This IS a policy dialogue -- just wanted to speak of 'class size' in terms
of the REAL issues.
