I find it strange when one says that there is no authorial intent. Once the author finishes his last stroke of the pin (or the last key of a keyboard) he is dead and detached from his work. This is a literary phenomenon these days, and quite frankly it is absurd. The reason I say this is because I hear people talking about the intent of the law and it makes me laugh. I would really like to play devils advocate and say that there is no intent of the law, because there is no authorial intent. Let the communities interpret the law for themselves; each of their interpretations is just as valid as the next. Where one interprets it as do not do this, another interprets it as do this. Decide which one is the valid interpretation based on your communities reading but please do not appeal to intent, remember there is no authorial intent. Just my thought for today.
