Constitution Day, Brought To You By The ACLU

By Susan Herman, President, ACLU at 1:31pm
Exactly one year ago, on Constitution Day, I challenged readers of this blog to test their knowledge of the Constitution with some very basic questions that distressingly few Americans were able to answer correctly. (They included questions like, "Name the 3 branches of Government," and "What rights are in the First Amendment?") After speculating about why so many people in our country know so little about a document they claim to revere, I ended by suggesting that the ACLU has an important role to play in ensuring that the Constitution does not become archaic.
