Danger: Constitutional Convention Ahead?

I’ve got a piece today in the Baltimore Sunwarning of the dangers of a second constitutional convention, which a shocking number of state legislatures are proposing willy-nilly.  They need to stop and think.

James Madison fought every proposal for a second constitutional convention, warning that it could be the scene of all manner of mischief.  He knew whereof he spoke, since he and others diverted the first Constitutional Convention from its professed purpose of rewriting the Articles of Confederation and converted it into the vehicle for creating a completely new government.
