The First Amendawhozit?

A 5 day rejection from ASIM for a brace of poems.

Oh, and here's another politician giving the South a bad name. Sigh. At least it wasn't Georgia again. I'd dearly love to see a constitutional amendment requiring that before any lawmaker, state or federal, can take office, they have to be able to recite the complete Bill of Rights without a teleprompter before a live studio audience of ACLU lawyers. Is that so much to ask?

[Update: It's been asserted that the ACLU isn't so enthusiastic about gun rights as the other rights. Fine. Throw in a few NRA lawyers too, just to round things out.]

Reading: Altered Carbon, by Richard K. Morgan. Far future noir and winner of the 2003 Philip K. Dick award. Zippy. And messy.
