  1. I hope it gets a LOT of attention and ideas flow from it. Although I have never sent in a FOIA request, I find it so often in my reading that I can’t help but acknowledge the profound affect it has had on historical studies.
    We have lost Washington’s Birthday, so perhaps we can mourn that loss with a Madison birthday that has real meaning.
