We cats just want to put it on the record that we owned a pocket Constitution before it was cool. We got it as a stocking stuffer a couple of Christmases ago, and we keep it on the shelf over our desk for fast, handy reference. (Like when we have to check, say, "Article XII.")
Did you know that the US Constitution is the oldest, and the shortest-written, constitution of any major government in the world? As writers, we value economy of speech, so we're very proud.
What we're not proud of is that people who hold up copies of the Constitution are getting tossed out of Trump rallies (sorry, "shows"). Is anything sadder?
Who are the patriots here? We cats think that, come November 8, we'll all know. And goodness gracious, do we HISS.
