Blogging About the Bill of Rights

Pardon my cynicism as I read President Bush's declaration of Monday, Dec. 15, as Bill of Rights Day. Now he remembers the Bill of Rights! The proclamation, which also made Wednesday Human Rights Day and this Human Rights Week, is republished at Blawg Review. As to that, I have no cynicism whatsoever, given that the anonymous Blawg Review editor's purpose is to encourage legal bloggers to write this week about the principles of human rights and civil liberties.

Monday's Bill of Rights Day edition of Blawg Review is being hosted by the often-irreverent civil libertarian Marc Randazza at his blog The Legal Satyricon. If you do as Ed. urges and write about these subjects, make sure you let Randazza know. Perhaps your post will make it into the annals of Bill of Rights Day. As President Bush says, "As we remember the enduring importance of our Constitution's Bill of Rights, our thoughts turn to those who have yet to secure these precious liberties." We can only assume he is referring to the detainees at Guantanamo.
