Attention To Detail, Part XI

| No Comments

This is what I mean when I say that I've been living in Indiana for thirteen years but am by no means a Hoosier:

A portion of the state constitution displayed in a government building in Indiana isn't Indiana's after all.

The preamble in the Elkhart County Administration Building is from Tennessee's state constitution, not Indiana's. It refers to Tennesseans' ``indefeasible right to worship almighty God according to the dictates of their own conscience.''

Which part of that story bothers me more is left as an exercise for the reader.
