Don't tinker with the Constitution

I disagree with the editorial ``The 67th Senator,'' Feb. 28.

The Constitution need not be burdened with economics. If passed, an amendment about the budget might lead to courts' jurisdictions over funds. The balance of power might be at stake.

Furthermore, ways to balance the budget have not been spelled out. Fluctuations of the economy and possible military emergencies haven't been actively considered.

There are too many risks involved in this reactionary tinkering with the Constitution. Pan Smith, West Newbury, Mass.
