What we're wondering is _where_ was it written thus, and by
_whom_? The point has been made several times that the only
place any of us has seen "expressed written consent" used has
been in amateur attempts to parrot legal parlance (e.g., home
videos). Who were these "forefathers" that you say used
the phrase "expressed written consent", setting the legal
precedent for subsequent generations to follow?
