But it's not just DARE, it's ALL the big projects: think about the Twain project at Berkeley, the biography project at Princeton, the History of Cartography project here at the UW-Madison, and the Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution, and the AngloSaxon Manuscripts on Microfiche projects, both also here in Madison. Not one of these could survive on money from a state council. It would be nice to think that states might work together on projects like these, but who really thinks that's a possibility? NEH grants work because they are large enough to tackle major projects that simply can't be done any other way. Please oppose the Kolbe amendment! Joan Hall, DARE
