"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)

Civil War and Barack Obama

Oregonians know that come this weekend is the mighty Civil War: The annual football game between the University of Oregon (at Eugene) and Oregon State (at Corvallis). It’s a hot deal. Word is that tickets are going for $1,000 and more on eBay.

Someone, naturally, has pulled a political perspective (the one from the right) out of this. There is no escaping politics any more . . .
