Dear Editor,

I read with interest Terry Goldman’s letter, where he pointed out the folly of trusting all the information that can be obtained using the Internet. Wikipedia is hardly a definitive source of information. However, Mr. Goldman should heed his own criticism and verify his sources. He cites a document posted on the Library of Congress web site as definitive proof of his argument, but his reference is only a copy of the Constitution, printed by John Carter, Publisher of the Providence Gazette, a newspaper of the times. The actual handwritten copy of the Constitution, signed by a majority of the Delegates to the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787, can be accessed at the web site of the National Archives, and actually reads to “insure domestic Tranquility.” I guess this is a lesson for all of us to fully understand the information (and its source) that springs forth so readily on our screens from the Internet
