  •  Another quote from the same judge (4.00)

    In an Op Ed piece that Judge Coughenour wrote for the Post Intelligencer on the 212th anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution, he observed: "The Constitution cannot enforce itself. Like any written law, it is subject to manipulation by those who would undermine its principles while paying tribute to its words. We should be at least as concerned, then, with creating a commitment to the values of the Constitution in today's society as we are with celebrating the past."
