14th Amendment

My esteemed friend, Will Walsh, reminds me that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution extends the Bill of Rights down to the state and municipal levels. He writes:

The Dover school board, by advocating the instruction of a specific creation myth arising from a specific religion was, consistent with a reasonably long string of Supreme Court decisions, in violation of the First Amendment.

He is quite correct, in this regard.


  1. Hey! Will gets to be your "esteemed friend"? Do I get a title too?

  2. I will think of a title for you.
