The address read: Glenn Doman, Fort Sanity, Philadelphia, PA, U.S. I guess The Institutes does look a little like a fort, being situated behind our 900-foot-long, high stone wall. But beyond the great compliment in that address and the Post Office’s brilliance in figuring out who it was intended for, there is one vital fact concerning sanity – that if we are ever going to have a sane world, the children offer us the best chance for the achievement of that sanity.
