EDITOR’S NOTE: I want to thank Terry for pointing out the mistake I made in my column Sunday in copying the preamble. Knowing better is not enough. Thanks Terry.
I suppose I cannot blame you, since Wikipedia and many other sites (not sights!) that ought to know better have it wrong also, but: the preamble says that action is being taken to “ensure domestic tranquility,” not “insure.” See the original text at the Library of Congress: memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/r?ammem/bdsdcc:@field(DOCID+@lit(bdsdccc0801))
Our founding fathers were exceptionally literate as well as wise. Would that more of our current leaders appreciated such differences.
