"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)

“No good news”

Via the new Capitol Record (of TVW) blog, a blunt quote from Governor Chris Gregoire: “There is literally today no good news in the world about the economy.”

This was from, and may overshadow, an interesting press conference in which she talked mainly about green jobs and environmental regulation. She proposed several moves – notably one related to electric cars – somewhat in response to Obama Administration actions reversing Bush Administration policies.
