Tomorrow is Constitu…
Tomorrow is Constitution Day, the day that document was adopted in 1787. Some very interesting paragraphs from the Fox News article on this:

The federal government typically stays out of telling schools what to teach, because that power rests with the states under the 10th Amendment to — yes — the Constitution.

Yet this topic is different thanks to Sen. Robert Byrd (search), a West Virginia Democrat who is known for being zealous about the Constitution. He inserted a provision into a huge 2004 spending bill that requires constitutional teaching, although schools are free to choose how.

I appreciate the sentiment by Sen. Byrd, though I wonder how much extra-constitutional pork was in that very spending bill.

(Note that Iraq is going to get their own constitution a little bit quicker than we got ours once we were free. Who says progress is slow over there?)
