Richard Cohen Paraphrases Justice Breyer

Cohen paraphrases Breyer in today's WaPo.
The Constitution is a wonderful document, quite miraculous actually, but only because it has been wisely adapted to changing times. To adhere to the very word of its every clause hardly is respectful to the Founding Fathers. They were revolutionaries who embraced change. That's how we got here.
Hey, when you have "unwavering values" who needs actual words.
