"It grows as it goes"

In the Journal this morning, link, Jim Scarantino, looks at
our state motto; crescit eundo, which translates to;
"it grows as it goes".

Scarantino points out that the political corruption surrounding state investments is not new. He outlines corruption cases dating back to the 1980s, and points out that little has changed except the amounts of the payoffs which are now ten times as large as they once were.

Scarantino concludes that our motto makes no sense, except in terms of "political rot".

He has a point.
