Pearls Before Swine (9/26/09)

09-26-09 (Pearls Before Swine)

I am a nerd when it comes to the Constitution. I admire its simplicity (“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union…”) while also marveling at the sheer level of minutiae involved in establishing the three branches of government. It sometimes seems as if the document contains more run-on sentences than a William Faulkner novel, and it indulges in more semicolons than a runaway grammar worksheet. But as far as I recall, it contains no guaranteed access to cheese, no protections against the plague and no clauses related to The Pied Piper of Hamelin.
