The New Nobility?

I am pretty sure that I don’t agree with Glenn Reynolds’s theory that allowing special privileges for government officials may serve to violate Art. I, Sec. 9 of the Constitution. I do believe, however, that allowing government officials to have special privileges to begin with is fundamentally offensive on a number of levels. And hey, if the advocates of a “living, breathing Constitution” are forced to have their interpretive principles used to curb the growth of government–and the power of governmental bureaucrats as well–I guess I might be able to learn to live with that outcome.
