"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)

Surprising lives of the Magic Valley

An excellent argument against the idea that geography equals destiny: A terrifically entertaining piece by Steve Crump of the Twin Falls Times News, about the 10 most remarkable people from the Idaho Magic Valley.

Not famous or influential (though some are), but the people with astonishing life stories, the kind that set you back and make you say, “Whoah …”

Wonder who other regions around the Northwest would come up with?
