If you are in or near D.C. on October 25

This is from my "old" law school.... DC School of Law

There’s a Quiet Revolution going on… Can we stop it?

Does the Constitution forbid social security? Minimum wages? Workplace safety laws?

Does the Constitution authorize torture?

Over the past quarter century, an increasingly influential movement on the far right has waged a quiet war to undermine the Constitution. This movement has grown even more during the Bush years. Ultra-conservative judges, professors, funders, think tanks, lawmakers and activists are pursuing an agenda that would radically transform American life.

"If they succeed," says University of Chicago law professor Cass Sunstein, "we will, without really seeing it happen, end up with a very different country--one that's both less free and less equal."
