A Virginia Assembly committee has soundly rejected Charles Carrico’s proposal to amend the state constitution, which was written by Thomas Jefferson himself. Thankfully there was some sanity, with 4 Republicans on the committee joining 6 Democrats to reject the bill.
“Having survived 219 years of honored Virginia tradition, can we really improve on the language of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison?” asked Sen. John S. Edwards (D-Roanoke).
Indeed not. Looks like Alabama’s title as the looniest state is safe for now.
