Lemons from Lemonade
In the Spring, I sent out an article on The Gold Clause Cases that included a discussion of Section Four of the Fourteenth Amendment and the only Supreme Court case interpreting that provision–Perry v. United States. No law review wanted it. This has happened to one or two other drafts that I submitted, so I went through an “agonizing reappraisal.” Was the topic too obscure? Was the article too descriptive? Too boring?
Now I think I have my answer — I should turn this into an article about Section Four and the issues raised by a possible default. That shouldn’t be too hard, though we’ll see when I’ll have time. No reason to start until the current negotiations end through.
I should note that I went through John Bingham’s statements on Section Four and didn’t find anything helpful. Maybe I’ll throw up another post reproducing what I did find, but I’ll be traveling next week.
