Um ... Do You Want To Rethink That Guest?
The Washington-based Constitutional Sources Project and the National Constitution Center museum in Philadelphia are together launching ConSource.org
, a new website devoted to the U.S. Constitution.
According to an Associated Press story
, among the things available on the site will be "James Madison's handwritten notes of the Constitutional Convention the summer of 1787" as well as the full text of the Federalist Papers and transcripts of the state ratification debates for seven states... and if you're a Constitution wonk like I am, this is incredibly good news.
They're planning to have a ceremony in Philly on the 17th, which is Constitution Day, this year marking the 220th anniversary of the Constitution's signing.
And who's the featured speaker at the event?
"Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, is a featured speaker for the event, a live webcast from the museum in Philadelphia."
Oh, my stars and garters!
