The "Living" Constitution

Quote du jour, courtesy of The Federalist Patriot:


"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 be 'living'? Depending on 'evolving standards,' maybe my two pair could beat your flush." --Walter Williams

Perhaps Mr. Williams, like the SCOTUS, needs to consult "international consensus" before asserting two pair does not beat a flush.
