The local weekly paper is all about Independence Day this week. The whole front page above the fold is the US Constitution.
Amethyst suggests that there’d be no point writing a letter to the editor explaining that it’s not Constitution Day, but Independence Day, as in “Declaration Of”. That thing they wrote in 1776 with the word independence in its title. Not the thing they wrote in 1787 without the word independence in its title.
Maybe people are afraid of the Declaration of Independence because it says that when your government doesn’t serve the people’s interests it should be, even must be, discarded and replaced.
