That’s what Publisher’s Weekly had to say about my forthcoming book: The Naked Constitution! I especially like the part in bold.
Freedman, a commentator for the conservative news site Ricochet.com, offers a no-holds-barred defense of originalism, which he defines as the proposition that the Constitution should retain the meaning it had when it was ratified in 1789. . . .
