Good Article on Lawrence v. Texas
I've mentioned approvingly the Supreme Court's decision in Lawrence v. Texas, where a law against sodomy was declared unconstitutional. As I was perusing the web, I came across a really interesting article on this case, by law professor Randy Barnett (some may remember seeing him in the news recently, when he defended the use of medical cannabis before the Supreme Court). While the article isn't perfect, it is a fascinating outline of some of the major Supreme Court decisions that led up to Lawrence.
If you find the topic at all interesting, you will probably find the article worth reading. It's about 20 pages long, and is available from the National Review
or in PDF format here
