BU professor looks to explain odd constitutional clauses
The Constitution, like any other document considered sacred and revered, has aspects that at least appear deeply peculiar. Such clauses beg for a detailed explanation rooting them in the broader Constitutional framework that governs our society. Unfortunately, “The Odd Clauses’’ does not adequately make those connections. While it does serve to shed some additional light, it only flickers and never clearly illuminates.
