There’s a booklet copy of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights that sits on my desk, just to the right of my computer. It sits upright, propped against some files that hold information about our website analytics, potential stories, a newsletter from the Dietert Center and a printed copy of our recently updated letters to the editor policy. Included in the booklet is the Declaration of Independence, the Texas Declaration and copies of letters from William Travis, among other historical documents of interest.

I keep it there for reference. I could Google the text, but I like having the reference in my hand when I’m reading through it one more time.
