**Written by Doug Powers A few days ago I wrote about Time magazine editor Richard Stengel’s cover piece entitled “One Document, Under Seige” in which Stengel seemed to reluctantly conclude that the Constitution does matter, just not as much as we think it does (though it always matters when Time needs to hide behind it).
