"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)

Don’t watch this at work

Hadn’t watched the Ron Wyden health plan video; just didn’t quite seem to make it to the top of the stack. An e-mail this morning from Wyden’s office included a number of reviews of it, suggesting there might be some entertainment value there. Call us dubious – an entertaining video on a senator’s health care plan.

Well, it is. We’ll give it a thumbs up. But as the e-mail points out, you might want to watch this somewhere other than in an easily observed computer at your workplace. This video actually has a subversive edge: The theme that Wyden’s health plan upholds “the fundamental right of every American to take this job and shove it.”

And, from Idaho, where Paul just delivered a talk at Caldwell: “The self-professed reluctant candidate packed the house Friday as more than 900 people filled the College of Idaho’s Jewett Auditorium to capacity to see Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.”

This thing could win some converts.
