The news today is about the ouster of former Senator DeMint over at the Heritage Foundation. The chair of the Heritage Board is Thomas Saunders III VMI 58. Apparently the Board felt that under DeMint Heritage had become too partisan and less an intellectual force for conservatism in America.
While by no means a conservative, I have always been drawn to the conservatism of the Right Honourable Gentleman Edmund Burke and President James Madison, until DeMint took over I found the Heritage Foundation to be a great source for conservative thought. Under DeMint intellectual efforts received scant attention. Hopefully Heritage will return to what it once was and intellectual powerhouse.
