Happy Birthday US Constitution

Today is the 221st anniversary of the adoption of the US Constitution.

I became a US Citizen on 9/19/1987 (i.e. 21 years ago!): the ceremony was part of Seattle's celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Constitution. I immediately registered to vote.

The Bill of Rights was not adopted till December 15th, 1791, so we shouldn't dwell on the sorry state of the 6th Amendment till then.
