  Will our courts be overseen for the next quarter century or more by men and women -- like R.A.T.S. -- who believe that the Constitution is a static document based on so-called "Framers' Intent," or by those who hold that it is both fluid and evolving?  

   The question is this: Do we wish to entrust issues and questions of personal liberty -- who we marry, whether we have control of our own bodies, what role religion plays in secular society, do some people have more rights than others, is your vote more sacred than mine, etc. -- to those want the past to rule, or to those who understand the past as having a vote but not a veto? 

   It all comes down to a vote that will ultimately give one man the power to continue shaping American history long after he has left office.

   Let the sun shine!
