Book Stuff

Filed under: General — Bunker @ 6:06 am

I finished browsing the wonderful book I received from Violet’s parents for Christmas, Golf, As It Was in the Beginning. I intend to keep it on my nightstand within easy reach. It is really a beautiful layout, and has interesting commentary on the various Open Championship venues. I’ll pick it up frequently.

I’ve added Constitutional Chaos to the reading rotation. In my view, Andrew Napolitano is the kind of jurist we need to have on the Supreme Court. Knee-jerk reaction from some folks will be, “He’s a right-wing shill who works for FoxNews!” Well, they’re half right. He is the Senior Judicial Analyst for FoxNews. He is also considered conservative. But his views would have more than a few conservatives spinning in their chairs. He is very much the libertarian and Constitutional scholar who believes the words in that document mean what they say.

Thus far I’ve read only the introduction, but his analysis already has me questioning some of my own opinions.

And that’s a good thing.


  1. Another suggestion for you, “Men in Black, How the Supreme Court is destroying America”, by Mark Levin. What a historic page turner. Backgrounds of some of the past supreme court jurists, i.e., Hugo Black, et al, make this fascinating and disturbing as well. A definite MUST READ!

  2. Several years ago I considered getting a combination law degree and history PhD. My dissertation topic? How the Supreme Court has violated the Constitution in the last 200 years. Looks like that should have been my book!
