Oh, and while folding laundry this morning, I was watching an old episode of the West Wing, and came across this, about the Constitution...
"The document is just the beginning. A constitutional democracy succeeds only if the constitution reflect the democratic values already alive in the citizenry."
Spoken by a fictional constitutional scholar, deep in the throes of helping an emerging democracy write its own constitution. Writing credits for "The Wake Up Call" go to Lauren Schmidt and Josh Singer.
We've made it this far.
