Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“A society is a modern society when it maintains a condition of repose, confidence, free activity of the mind, and tolerance for divergent views. A society is modern when it affords sufficient well-being for the conveniences of life and the development of taste. And, finally, a society is modern when its members are intellectually mature, by which [Matthew] Arnold means that they are willing to judge by reason, to observe facts in a critical spirit, and to search for the law of things.”

–From Lionel Trilling, “The Moral Obligation to Be Intelligent: Selected Essays.”

In “a darling college town” just west of here, they found Florida’s only true Gilded Age mansion and most historic home, Stetson Mansion. From the dust of years of neglect and disrepair, J.T. and Michael made Stetson Mansion Florida’s crown jewel of private, 19th century residences. J.T. will share the story of how, with no idea of where to obtain the enormous funds necessary to the task, they set about restoring this historic treasure. The Foundation created the WISE program to provide continuing education and cultural enrichment activities to senior members of the community. WISE is open to anyone age 50 or older, for $30 for an individual or $50 per couple per year.
