The Colonial Period

The Constitutional Convention – que pasa?

They invented conventions to write the Constitution

As the name might suggest, something constitutional happened at the convention in Philadelphia. The Founding Fathers wrote the holiest of holies – the Constitution. It took them from May to September, so it’s lucky that it was so brief, as often when you lock a bunch of crusty old men into the conference center of a Motel 6 for a few months, they come up with a bloated collection of random thoughts and power point slides.

Maybe it was because they had to write everything by hand that the Constitution is so refreshingly short, or maybe they were all busy partying at night and just snoozing in the day for the first 100 days, and then realized that they had to get something to show for the expense accounts to be validated when they got back home.
