so i was super wired when i got home last night around 11pm (no idea why) and knew sleep wasn't going to happen. so decided to finally start going through the pictures from my DC trip last fall. got a ton of pictures i need to go through so just a few night shots for now. i'm potentially going to DC again in november for a tax conference. looking through the pictures i rediscovered this great quote by thomas jefferson that's actually up in the jefferson memorial. makes me think about the tea partiers (or whoever else) always going on about what the founding fathers would have wanted:

"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."
