Constitutional Justices

Here's an economist's view on the Constitution and the judiciary. Walter Williams writes:

"Many law professors, and others who hold contempt for our Constitution, preach that the Constitution is a living document. Saying that the Constitution is a living document is the same as saying we don't have a Constitution. For rules to mean anything, they must be fixed. How many people would like to play me poker and have the rules by 'living'? Depending on 'evolving standards,' maybe my two pair could beat your flush."
