Bill of Rights Day, December 15, is now a reality in California, the nation's most populous state. Thanks to the extraordinary work of state Senator Johannessen, who drafted and introduced the resolution on March 26, the Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 82 was adopted by the state Senate on May 28, and adopted by the state Assembly on August 6, 1998.

Winners pass their knowledge on to future champions. Buy a bundle of Gran'pa Jack's Common Sense booklets for your kids, grandkids, scout troopers. Tell the kids, "We can Win!" Sponsor an essay contest about the Bill of Rights in your local high school. The heritage moves forward -- but only if we educate the children. Go to
