    One of the big issues for me re the Constitution is, why did the process work so well here, but seems to work so badly in developing countries? a possible TED talk to spark some discussion: http://www.ted.com/talks/rory_stewart_how_to_rebuild_democracy

    I am sorry to announce that Bill Downs will NOT be speaking this Friday July 4th due to his father's heart attack in Wyoming. We will try and have him in the future when he is back on the Gulf. The FreeUp will still be held at the same place and time. We will have open discussion among us on the Constitution.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
