"Experience constantly teaches that new members of a public body do not feel the necessary respect or responsibility for the acts of their predecessors, and that a change of members and of circumstances often proves fatal to (the) consistency and stability of public measures." -- James Madison (1751-1836), Notes on Debates, January 6, 1783
