Did you know that most Americans can name the Three Stooges, but not the three branches of the U.S. Government? I learned that, and other frightening facts, from this post at the American Constitution Society blog. There they pay due tribute to their favorite 221-year-old document (and namesake) in honor of Constitution Day. Want to be more than a statistic? Spend some time today brushing up — you may learn something new, and maybe even find you have some rights you didn’t even know you had!
While you’re at it, check out TortDeform. They give a shout out to Constitution Day as well.
And after that, pop in to the Agonist, where they give their thoughts on why the current financial crisis is also a Constitutional crisis. Hint:
“Americans must see themselves, not as adversaries of their government, but as owners of it.”
Thanks to everyone who’s taking time to recognize the true meaning of this important day!
