"Our job here is to present the differing sides of public questions, not solely to emphasize in spectacular fashion the points of disagreement alone, but to seek common ground as well, because the common ground that underlies all our diversity is greater than any one of our own individual opinions." ?? Dr. Arthur G. Coons, President, Occidental College and past President, Town Hall (1950), at Town Hall's 25th anniversary luncheon
