Recent Web Postings on the 17th

Here is a wrap up of some recent articles found concerning the 17th Amendment. Most of the links are from Dave Oatney’s posting on the web site “whereIstand.” Mr. Oatney commented on blogger God's Not Done With Me Yet’s response to Baseball Cranks’ defense of the 17th Amendment and he starts to take off from there.
