In the following press release, Wichita’s Flint Hills Center for Public Policy announces yet another addition to their staff. Under the leadership of its president Dave Trabert, the Flint Hills Center has added several talented people to its staff in just the past few months. I’ve not met Ms. Harris, the subject of this press release. When I do meet her, since she’s a graduate of George Mason University, I need to ask her if she knows Walter Williams, who is a hero of mine.
