Edward Maximus' Institute & Library

is being dedicated today with appropriate Dignitaries in Attendance. Wisely the executors and founders of this Institute have build in a heavy educational component into the experience, this is a very necessary thing, kids today are not being taught much in the way of civics and are not encouraged to see themselves as legatees of a Great and Living Democracy. And the consequences of that can be seen in places like Indiana where ideology-drunk politicians are trying to remarginalize homosexuality in a sort of sneaking cowardly fashion. I despair of this generation of politicians they are by and large intellectually corrupt, maybe something can still be done with the oncoming generation. At least Edward M. Kennedy's heirs are willing to give it a shot, health to their efforts.
