The Constitution

A friend of mine pointed me to a Wall Street Journal editorial written by one of our former professors (reproduced Here).

Instead of imposing term limits on federal judges like the ancient Sandy O'Connor or Bill Rehnquist, the author proposes an amendment that would confine the words "due process" and "equal protection" in the Fourteenth Amendment to their original meaning -- no racial discrimination -- instead of "empty vessels into which they [the Supreme Court justices] can pour any meaning." It's interesting.
