Bill of Rights per the News-Miner

An article by Chris Freiberg in the Sept. 18 Fairbanks Daily News-Miner talks about how people really don't know their rights or the Constitution very well. Apparently this was inspired by the anniversary of its signing:
Monday was the 220th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. In recognition of the event, Gov. Sarah Palin has declared Sept. 17-23 United States Constitution Week in Alaska.
Well, for those of you who would like to know more, your friendly neighborhood (Ester) newspaper actually informs you about those rights in a series called "Live Free or Die," by Hannah Hill and Kate Billington. We're up to the Fifth Amendment (working backwards from the 10th). I haven't put them on line yet, but I think I should do so here pretty quick. However, the first one is up on Everything2.
