Reply To: Best book on the slaughterhouse cases?


No, their argument isn’t that “we are likely to poison ourselves,” it’s that New Orleanians were being poisoned. This assertion seems incontrovertable.

As to “the professor,” I don’t agree. As I explained before (and do at more length in THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION), earning a J.D. doesn’t require obtaining any knowledge of constitutional history. Unfortunately, being hired as a law professor after obtaining a J.D. seems to confer the impression that one is expert in constitutional history. This is a very unfortunate combination.
