As we watch the Articles of Impeachment markup session tonight

Be heartened, as I ran out of pocket-sized copies of The Constitution at a seniors gathering. I didn't have to talk politics, I talked civic responsibility.

"We can disagree politically, but let's disagree about politics, Constitutionally."

I will bring more than three next week, as clearly, I could have handed out dozens.

1. there are some very good Constitutional books out there

Very brief, short, concise, to the point.

If I get another lifetime, I want to be a Constitutional lawyer.

It is indeed encouraging to hear about your experience today!

2. Yes, well, I think there's a hunger for some fulcrum of truth

To know whether what you see on the television screen matches your face-to-face interactions. And while many cannot pause to learn constitutional law at a higher level, The Constitution provides a beautiful construct for how differing people can come together and try to live well amongst reach other. It's not perfect, but it should be an anchor for real engagement and debate.

I gave those out to a group in a community that was devasted by a natural disaster, and life, more generally. People are looking for certainty and a way forward in this modern world.

Went over way better than I expected. And it steels me against those who would deny the utmost usefulness of The Constitution.

4. Thank you, I'll review that in a few minutes, maybe hours...

I've wanted a printable layout, but I'm kinda nuts for verifying it. I'll get to it tonight or tomorrow.

I'd like verified with-the-original copies, EVERYWHERE.

5. I didn't look closely at it, please let me know

I used to have PDF copies of most of the really important Docs in 5x7 pamphlet form but lost them years ago.
