From a Ukrainian journalist meditating on his country and ours:

Why don’t we use the American Constitution? It was written by really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and they’re not using it anymore.

Ouch! It stings because it’s so close to the truth.

    And if the Supremes hadn’t twisted it every which way but correctly, maybe some of the weasel Repubs would stand up and say “Enough!” I still can’t understand how simple and concise wording can get so many shadows, penumbras and such.

    It is sort of like what Rex Harrison, as Professor Higgins, said of the English language in “My Fair Lady”(’64), “In America, they haven’t used it for years.”.
