Your Opinion: Origin of phrase corrected

January 13th, 2013 by Greg Treiman, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

In Mr. Horstmann's letter on constitutional prioritization, he incorrectly stated that the phrase "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" comes from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

It actually comes from the Declaration of Independence.
