Be ashamed to die until you’ve won some victory for humanity. Horace Mann, (1796-1859). His victories? Founder of K12 public education in the US and Antiock College. His birthday is today.

Cinco de Mayo celebration today at Denver Civic Center Park. At 4 p.m., I’ll be at the North Pavillion, just across Speer Blvd. from the Denver Newspaper Agency building, for the 1st Denver Speakers Corner. Hope you’ll join us!

The Denver Post calls for elimination of term limits in today’s paper. This is a bad idea right now, maybe later. Here’s my comment that I posted just now:

I was against term limits, seems to me voters should decide who represents them. Problem is, voters don't really get to choose right now. But we could, if we organized.

Colorado law gives us a mechanism for banding together to get rid of bad representatives and party leadership with the potentially wonderful Colorado Caucus, the precinct-assembly system for nominating to the primary ballot. Let's eliminate term limits if and when legislators fund a project to strengthen the Colorado Caucus as they have in Iowa. Did you attend last February 5? Will you in 2010? Why or why not?

I'll tell you more, and you can tell us what you think about the Colorado Caucus or anything else, this afternoon (Sun, May 4) at the 1st meeting of Denver Speakers Corner, North Pavillion (right across Speer Blvd from the Denver Newspaper Agency, just South of the Blackberry Exhibit), Denver Civic Center Park. Tell us what you think, or just listen, at 4 p.m. More info and optional RSVP at
special Abe Lincoln exhibit at the Colorado Historical Museum, today's the last day! Park once, see it all!

Hope you'll join us this afternoon!
