This is a pre-publication draft of an essay in which I respond briefly to 18 articles contributed to a special Festschrift issue of the Connecticut Law Review. All but one of the contributions fall within two categories – constitutional change and constitutional interpretation. These topics have engaged me for most of my career as a legal scholar. While every one of the contributions sheds new and useful light on these subjects, I usually have some differences with the interpretations argued in them Of course, I can only treat those differences superficially here. In each case, moreover, my comments should not obscure my sincere admiration of and appreciation for the authors’ efforts.

Keywords: Constitutional Law, Constituent Power, Constitutional Interpretation, Comparative Law
