"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)

Another indicator

At the Idaho Legislature, there’ve long been a bunch of informal indicators that, yes, the session is indeed fast approaching conclusion. The blooming of the crocuses was long a popular tell. Our favorite was the appearance of packing boxes around the hallways; you knew they were getting ready to split town when those were made available.

Maybe now a new one.

Betsy Russell at the Spokesman-Review blogs that “Something was missing from the Capitol Annex grounds today – the festive white tent in the back parking lot, with its scalloped-edge trim, that housed the deluxe flushing Port-a-Potties brought in for the legislative session.”

Time to go.
