#5 Keeping a Journal

Article I, Section 5, clause 3 states that each house of Congress shall “Keep a Journal” of its proceedings. It’s not called Documenting, or Recording, or even Writing Down. Congress is required to Keep a Journal.

Well, two journals, actually.

The heritage of journal-keeping certainly predates this nation, but I think it’s wonderful that those are the words they chose to put in the Constitution. Keep a Journal. It’s good advice for all of us.
