  1. J Gordon Hylton Says:

    I can honestly report that I got 10 of 10 correct on the quiz. Scoring lower, admittedly, would have been quite embarassing.

    Ed Fallone and I are participating in the university’s Constitution Day program tomorrow (Monday) afternoon in Raynor Library.

  2. Well, I will admit to getting 9 out of 10. The question that tripped me up is the one I pose in the post itself.

    Professor Hylton, please provide more information on tomorrow’s program.

  3. Argh! I got the same one wrong, Professor Mazzie! (And with apologies to Prof. Hylton: I had you for a seminar on the history of US Constitutional law–I should have scored 100%!)
