Originalism in the Blogs
Michael Ramsey

Saul Cornell goes a couple of rounds with Mike Rappaport and experiences total meltdown.  Mary Dudziak comments at Legal History Blog: How Not to Criticize Originalism.

My take:  Professor Cornell had some interesting points to make about eighteenth-century interpretation in the second half of this article, but he's taking this debate way too personally, and it shows in a number of respects.  Saul, it's an academic discussion.  The world will little note nor long remember what we say here.
