If you like the Cubs, this will be interesting, but I'm not sure it will appeal to everyone else, even other baseball fans.… (lisätietoja)

Very thought-provoking book. I don't profess to be nearly as intelligent as Mr. Will, but having read the Federalist Papers and John Adams' biography, I wonder if the Founders were more concerned with limiting the power of the executive than the legislative (although, as Mr. Will points out it has been the legislature that has enable the expanded executive branch/administrative state).
