If you were going to make a dictionary entry or a wikipedia article on originalism you might include original intent since it's so often confused for it. Otherwise, original meaning is a dead letter. It survives basically as a misunderstanding, a straw man, or as an illustration of what originalism isn't.Does anyone actually advocate original intent at all? I was just trying to come up with a hyperbolic illustration of why intent's not the thing that matters.
