In this Essay, I respond briefly to 18 articles contributed to this special Festschrift issue of the Connecticut Law Review. All but one of the contributions fall within two categories: constitutional change and constitutional interpretation. These topics have engaged me for most of my career as a legal scholar. While every one of the contributions sheds new and useful light on these subjects, I usually have some differences with the interpretations argued in them. Of course, I can only treat those differences superficially here. In each case, moreover, my comments should not obscure my sincere admiration of and appreciation for the authors’ efforts.
