Offered without comment:

“That the several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes — delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”

Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions of 1798

Well, listening anyway. I just finished the Great Courses lecture series “The Art of Public Speaking” and am now staring on the lecture series “The Story of Human Language”. Erin and I are also watching the Great Courses series “The Lost Art of Cooking” every night. Great stuff!
