This Article poses the question: what does the ordinance really mean? Trying to find out what the ordinance really means requires something that I will call "interpretation as retrieval." By this phrase, "interpretation as retrieval," I mean nothing terribly fancy. Interpretation as retrieval is the attempt to retrieve the meaning of an artifact or text-a meaning that is found in the artifact or text and that you, the interpreter, do not already have.
