"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

Risch’s ratings

And how do Idahoans view Governor Jim Risch a month after his signature event – the property tax special session?

According to this month’s Survey USA polling, not so well. His favorable/unfavorable numbers were 53% to 32% a month ago – pretty good. This month? 44% favorable, 38% unfavorable – a net fall of 15% in the margins.
