Doing It Yourself

It’s neat to see a new crop of entrepreneurs who have become wildly rich reinvesting in their communities.  Maybe this is a little taste of what it was like to see a new library funded by Andrew Carnegie open a century and more ago.

There are alternatives to our continuing inability to fund our public schools adequately, or our inability to teach our children in public schools effectively, depending on which side of the issue you find yourself.  People with the means to effect meaningful and positive and lasting change are doing so again.  Or at least attempting to.  That independent spirit is refreshing in a day when so many seem to expect so much for so little.
