"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)

Checking out the port

Port of Seattle

Port of Seattle

Not something we’ve paid great attention to up to now, but maybe should: A range of issues at the Port of Seattle (maybe other ports, too) that seem to be accelerating.

There’s a good quick overview, with links to the Seattle Times and elsewhere, in the Slog. The immediate trigger has to do with a big severance package where none seemed to be indicated, but other issues bob up nearby. We’ll be back in this territory again, no doubt.
