U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia presented a speech in Delaware recently, explaining to a group of students at the University of Delaware  his "originalist" view of the Constitution, as opposed to those who consider it to be a "living document" whose intent changes with the times. The "living constitution school of thought" compares with those who try to determine the meaning intended when the Constitution was written. Here is an article by The News Journal, the local paper, describing the presentation in more detail. One interesting quote in the article from the justice was that even "stupid laws can be constitutional".
