Miss Lopez, John J. Miller's piece today on George Mason is great. I'd heard the name, but never did know anything about Mason, besides giving Walter Williams a place to work (worth a monument all by itself.)

It struck me that while John points out that Jefferson got his "All men are created equal..." from Mason, Jefferson must have added "...are granted by their creator with...." I assume this is the same Thom Jefferson who we are constantly reminded invented "separation of church and state...." (without which we would never have anACLU....)
