Is that a Constitution in your pocket?

No. 84 (I forget his real name) has a post titled They're not getting my pocket Constitution.

I too have a pocket Constitution, somewhere on my office desk. Its origins are obscure to me now, but I think I got it in the year of the Bicentennial. Somewhere printed it on it is the name of Congressman Wayne Hays, a committee chairman of some kind, who along with a secretary named Elizabeth Ray got a fair amount of publicity in that 1976 year, which publicity spread so far as to reach the notice of a 11 year-old boy reading Newsweek in Southwest Virginia.
