Where’s respect for Constitution?

I once knew a rebellious young woman who did a year in jail for contempt of court, because she “mooned” the judge. For those who are concerned about the direction our country is taking, perhaps there is a lesson here. How about contempt of the Constitution for those in the political class who are walking all over it? Surely the U.S. Supreme Court, the third co-equal branch of our system of checks and balances, and the keeper of the Constitution, has not only the authority but the duty to protect and defend it. Otherwise the oath required of our politicians and bureaucrats to defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic, becomes meaningless. FRED COLBURN, Meadow Vista
