DYK - Last week you lost another constitutional right?

The nation was distracted this week: the House
to quietly pass H.R. 2679, the "Public Expressions of Religion
Protection Act of 2006," with scarcely a mention in the media.
The bill would prevent plaintiffs from recovering legal costs in
any lawsuit based on the "establishment clause" of the First
Amendment, which of course only happens when the court finds
the plaintiff's Constitutional rights have been denied.  The
Senate is expected to pass a companion bill, S. 3696.
