Quote of the Day

If we cannot share every intellectual assumption that formed the minds of those who framed the charter, we can still address the constitutional uncertainties the way they must have envisioned, by relying on reason that respects the words the Framers wrote, by facing facts, and by seeking to understand their meaning for the living.

from David Souter's commencement address to Harvard, speaking of reading the Constitution. Spoken like a true Episcopalian. Sound advice for reading Scripture as well, methinks.
