Why it's always a good idea to read the fine print before signing on the dotted line

From the Daily Telegraph by Charles Moore.

Oh my. I had never actually taken the time to look at it before, but that's just disturbing. It really shows the culture difference between America and Europe. Frankly, 500 pages of guaranteed government power are 500 too many.

I read through our Constitution a while back--for the first time, I confess--and was struck by what a wonderful document it is. The founding fathers obviously thought a long time, and produced what should be a model for all such constitutions--just long enough.
