Life being nasty, brutish, and - most importantly for present purposes - short, I rarely get to visit the blawgs listed to the left of this post. But a few minutes at Jack Balkin's blawg yielded two nice pieces that relate to what we are doing in Con Law these days. First, a critique
(or, a link to a critique) of the Federal Marriage Amendment's sloppy drafting. Second, a quick hit
on the questionable and opportunistic originalism of Justice Scalia.
