Are Lawyers A Productive Part of Society?

David Kopel on incorporation

Travel put me a bit behind, so here's a belated link to David Kopel's blog entry at the Volokh Conspiracy yesterday, regarding the issue of incorporation of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution against the states. Incorporation is the central issue behind McDonald v. Chicago, and very important case that will be heard during this session of the U.S. Supreme Court.

I heartily recommend both the short version and the long version, at: Want to do it the easy way, or the hard way?
