"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)

Dorn’s arrest

This could be a major problem that won’t go way easily.

Any number of public elected officials have had charges or convictions on driving under the influence – an offense that has been taken ever more seriously over the last generation.

Somehow, the impact may be a little higher for a superintendent of public instruction, the top education official in the state, than for some other offices. Washington’s superintendent, Randy Dorn, has been charged with just that after an arrest early Sunday.

Watch carefully how he handles this . . .
