Constitution of the United States of America
for Civil Rights in the U.S. and Northern
Ireland: A Personal Reminiscence by Katherine Stuart van Wormer
Citizen's Civil Justice Program is to ensure that consumers
are protected and public health and safety are maintained through
a fair and accessible court system. This requires an affirmative
legislative program to remedy corporate practices such as arbitration
clauses and secrecy agreements; and opposition to legislation
which would roll back consumer rights.

Revolutionary: Gouverneur Morris, the Rake Who Wrote the
Constitution by Richard Brookhiser -- The creators
of our democracy had both the temptations and the shortcomings
of all men, combined with the talents and idealism of the
truly great. No Founding Father demonstrates the combination
of temptations and talents so vividly as Gouverneur Morris.
He drafted the Constitution, and his hand lies behind many
of its most important phrases. Morris's story is one of
the most entertaining and instructive of all. He was a
witty, peg-legged ladies' man. He was an eyewitness to
two revolutions (American and French) who joked with George
Washington, shared a mistress with Talleyrand, and lost
friends to the guillotine. He gave New York City its street
grid and New York State the Erie Canal. In his private
life, he suited himself; pleased the ladies until, at age
57, he settled down with one lady; and lived the life of
a gentleman. He kept his humor through war, mobs, arson,
death, and accidents that burned the flesh from one of
his arms and cut off one of his legs below the knee.
