Editor,

I have a suggestion: Let's abbreviate the U.S. Constitution. Skip the Articles, start with The Preamble and then fast-forward to the Second Amendment. That's all half the people in this country seem to care about anyway – even though they don't understand what it actually says. And what difference would it make even if they did? These days, things mean whatever you want them to mean (or whatever Fox News wants you to think they mean), so why bother to even pretend to debate what the framers and signers actually meant?
