I was on vacation last week. My wife, son and I visited Charleston, S.C., where we soaked up a lot of Revolutionary War and Civil War history. (OK, we also spent a day at the beach.)
Whenever I attend Religious Right meetings like the annual Values Voter Summit, I hear a lot of talk about the U.S. Constitution.
