Summary
  • The life-long Democrat who played Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show puts out a call to all liberals to reclaim the constitution from the right-wingers who use it as justification for every horrible thing they want to do
  • Thanks to free public education, anyone can read the Constitution-- and should. The men who wrote it couldn't agree on what it meant, so should you trust someone who claims they do? Asner, a life-long Democrat, puts out a call to all liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as justification for every horrible thing they want to do
