When Richard Wilkins lays out a real constitutional argument I
will be first in line to read it.  So far, he resorts to bombast
and preaching rather than jurisprudence.

The "local option" you propose does have some major practical
complications (as we have discussed), ones that could be sorted
out however by reasonable, pragmatic people.

But, Steven, thank you for acknowledging that one needn't wax
heretical to oppose the the proposed amendment.
