: I started reading my biography of William Lloyd Garrison, mainly because I'm in a mood to tackle weighty issues but also because I've been wondering recently whether anyone ever used a Fifth Amendment "just compensation" argument against the abolition of slavery.

Well, it took me about a minute with Google to answer that in the affirmative, so I'm back to my primary reason for reading the biography.
