The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

ECHO underway, posted Tuesday, December 21, 2010

From the “Editor’s Table,” Connecticut Quarterly, Volume 2, January 1896:

The question has often been asked, “What will you do when you exhaust the material in Connecticut?” We must answer, “We cannot exhaust it.” At first glance the question seems plausible enough, but like many another subject, the more it is studied the more is to be found therein. It is not a question of what to get, but what to select, and what to use first. Verily, “there’s the rub.” We would like to give all parts of the state first representation, if we could. We cannot, and must therefore ask those that do not come first to have patience. We will get to them as soon as we can.

The ECHO staff wholeheartedly agrees.
