I kept a pocket Constitution in every suit before it was cool

January 6th, 2011

Check out this piece from the WSJ titled They Don’t Leave Home Without It: The Constitution as Political Pocket Protector. It turns out members of Congress are now keeping a pocket Constitution on their person at all times. Heh. I’ve been doing this for years. I’ve even chided others for failing to carry a Constitution.

The Constitution is like many things. But, it is like American Express. Never leave home without it. I usually leave two in every suit jacket. Frequently, when I bring suits to the Cleaners I have to remember to empty the pockets, lest our great charter be defiled by noxious cleansing chemicals.

I even have a collection of Constitutions autographed by Judges and scholars. Glad to see this trend is catching on.
