Quote of the Day

Thomas Jefferson, quoted in the Wall Street Journal editorial about the Scott Brown senatorial win in Massachusetts:
It is to me a new and consolatory proof that wherever the people are well-informed they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.

The WSJ editor adds: Two hundred and twenty-one years later, the sage of Monticello has been proven right again.
