Death of a great person

Sidney Harman has died.  He is most famous for his audio equipment -- I remember years ago coveting my friend's fabulous Harman Kardon receiver and amplifier.  But his contributions were far bigger, and far greater.  He provided education and training for the workers in his factory: he taught black children in Virginia in the sixties when their schools were closed to try to avoid desegregation: he gave his employees stock ownership, and progressive policies.  If only all corporate leaders would take his point of view and follow his example!

Yours, celebrating a life well led!
