"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."

David Bernstein on "Reasonable Accomodations" laws.

Here we have, right out in the open, what is wrong with the legal profession. If the context is the law (as it is on The Volokh Conspiracy), the advisability (or, as Bernstein has it, foolishness) of a law is no part of the discussion. Legislatures can, and often do, enact thoroughly stupid laws; they are laws nonetheless.
