America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Congrats, Grandpa Cheney

Dick Cheney's daughter Mary had her baby on Wednesday. If Iraqi grandparents have time to pay attention to such things, they probably are envious that Grandpa Cheney doesn't have to worry about his new grandson being murdered by an American bomb falling out of the sky or soldiers bursting into his home looking for "insurgents."
