"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)


At the University of Idaho Argonaut (the school newspaper – celebrating its 110th anniversary this fall) blog, this note about national/international media excess:

It’s not just the University of Idaho cheerleaders getting tired of hearing about their uniforms. We are, too. The Argonaut has had information and photo requests from the likes of USA Today, Inside Edition, The Associated Press, Fox News, Fox TV and a myriad of other local news sources. We’ve had more outside news sources contact us about this than when UI alumna Sarah Palin was added to the Republican presidential ticket. May it end soon, for all of our sakes.

We’ve not said a word about it so far, but the massive media attention – and the Argonaut is not exaggerating here – certainly deserves note.
