One Man, One Idea, One Result
It's the weekend, so time for a little light reading, and perhaps a history lesson. 50 years ago, Justice William O. Douglas led a hike to call attention to the then-plight of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. A proposal existed to pave over the canal.
Justice Douglas wanted to keep the canal in its natural state. He succeeded. And you wonder, what can one person do? 184 miles of canal are now preserved.
