"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)

Sandy River rampage

Sandy River Flood from alexandra erickson on Vimeo.

One of the best videos I’ve ever seen showing the power and destruction of a flood – this one on the Sandy River southeast of Portland.

H/t to Blue Oregon and the earlier posters on Ecotrope at Oregon Public Broadcasting.
