What Is the Supreme Court Thinking?

Two books on the Constitution are free all day Thursday to help make sense of the Supreme Court's health care reform ruling.

Thursday is the last day of the Supreme Court's term, and that's when the justices are expected to release their ruling on the constitutionality of the health care reform law.

Does the Constitution allow the federal government to require Americans to buy health insurance? If it does, what happened to our government of limited and enumerated powers?

Starting Wednesday night at midnight, you can download a free copy of "How the First Amendment Came to Protect Topless Dancing," the true story of the Supreme Court's landmark rulings redefining the power of the federal courts and the federal government.

In honor of the Supreme Court's last day of the term, "How the First Amendment Came to Protect Topless Dancing" will be free all day on Thursday, and so will "The 37th Amendment: A Novel," a legal thriller set in the year 2056, forty years after the Constitution is changed to get rid of "due process of law."
