Considering the controversy surrounding the birth of the U.S. Constitution in 1787, it appears our commission and foundation are squarely in the spirit of the Bicentennial commemoration, stirring debate on how best to pursue meaningful citizen involvement. Readers who might be puzzled or disturbed (Letters, Sept. 1) about Bison tennial Ben, a fanciful mascot enlisted in a serious cause, can be assured that the foundation agenda does indeed support more conventional educational resources in its programs and policies.
