I'm glad that Liberty Fund is publishing Seldon's Collected Works ( http://www.libertyfund.org/details.asp?displayID=1881 ) so that others will be able to know and understand Seldon's ideas and efforts over the decades.
He will be missed. One of the quiet leaders of classical liberalism. May he always be remembered.
Just a thought.
