I should have paid more attention in my high school government class. Like many people since 2016, I’ve been frantically schooling myself on our three governmental branches, the role of the F.B.I., the power of federal and state courts, etc. So I read the constitution, which I hadn’t looked at since that last high school exam. It’s startling.
Of course, the U.S. Constitution is in every public library and a google-click away. While I’m interested in content of the document, I’m also interested in how messages (good news, dire warnings, and propaganda) get dropped from airplanes and drones to the public below. I ordered 40 copies of the United States Constitution and placed them in public places in the fall of 2018. I imagine these paper copies to be sweet like manna and caustic like acid rain, wherever they fall.
