"Indeed, the rage of theorists to make constitutions a vehicle for the conveyance of their own crude, and visionary aphorisms of government, requires to be guarded against with the most unceasing vigilance."
     -- Joseph Story
     Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States
     Book III, § 1857.

Yet another great essay from Bill Whittle: Not so much for the target he's aiming at (really, how hard can that be to hit?), but for the calibre of the ammo he's using.

A minor kvetch: From the structure of the essay, it should have ended with a rundown of the pernicious consequences of the Michael Moore approach: something just a little more definite than "we will surely lose our way."
