This was a SUPER event. The bust is a studied and wonderful likeness, due to the talents of artist Zhou Limin, and has a great presence in our library, for all to see.

Big kudos go to the Library staff, in particular Brad McCulley and other department heads for knocking themselves out to make it special for everyone involved--including a number of Chinese and Chinese-American resident leaders and visitors.

In particular, thanks are due to Dr. David Chai, Mayor Brownrigg and others for many years of research and work to bring Anson Burlingame's vision and ever-relevant message of inclusiveness and fairness to light in our modern times.

I wonder if the Great Firewall of China will censor this event. Well, I guess google knows the answer, google knows all...

The Hep Cat

A commenter at the local paper website is talking down Anson Burlingame based on him having been a member of the Know Nothing party. I have never seen this person talk down members of the party that held KKK members for years and years. You know. The one that runs this state.
