What to keep in your jacket

Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black was famous for keeping a dog-eared copy of the constitution in his jacket pocket at all times.

Personally, I'd have kept two booklets with me: the constitution, and the essay "Walking" by Henry David Thoreau. The former tells you how your freedom works, and the latter reminds you why it's worthwhile.
