"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)

Reasons for recall

The mayor of Arlington, Oregon, has been recalled on a vote of 139-142, in large part because she once posted a picture – taken before she became mayor – dressed in what amounts to a swim suit.

Consider this another argument for reform of the recall law . . .
