Your Sept. 11, 2021, piece by law professor Justin Collings on “Separation of Powers and the U.S. Constitution” is the most important political article you have ever published. I hope everyone will read it again and again, and share it.

It would have been nice if you had highlighted some points for the casual reader, such as:

“Our presidents take actions not traceable to any plausible reading of the original Constitution.”

“But tyrants in every age have pleaded necessity; authoritarians always invoke emergencies, exigencies or the latest crisis to justify assuming additional powers.”

“Congress retains the power to restrain the presidency, and Congress still answers to voters.”

Do you know how your members of Congress vote, and are you engaged in “befriending” the Constitution and electing good and wise men and women to Congress?
