Kevin Blyer, a writer for “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” presents his thoughts on the U.S. Constitution. The author contends that the Constitution is in need of an update and cites Thomas Jefferson’s maxim that the document should, “naturally expire at the end of 19 years.” Mr. Bleyer recalls his travels from Greece to Philadelphia and his discussions with the likes of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as he takes a critical examination of the Constitution. Kevin Bleyer was interviewed on stage at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The video trailer for his book was shown as well as the center’s six-word stump speech video. Mr. Bleyer also responded to questions from members of the audience. close
