"It will be of little avail to the people,
that the laws are made by men of
their own choice, if the laws be so
voluminous that they cannot be read,
or so incoherent that they cannot be
understood; if they be repealed or
revised before they are promulgated,
or undergo such incessant changes that
no man, who knows what the law is to-day,
can guess what it will be
to-morrow."


-- Alexander Hamilton and James Madison (Federalist No. 62, 1788)
