Please note that I have added links on the left sidebar (just under the blogroll) to allow you quick access to contact your elected representatives.  Write to them early and often (sort of like they vote in Chicago).  Elected officials read their mail and are influenced by your emails, letters, and phone calls.

If when you write, you are civil and write a letter that you would read and respond to, you will get better results than if you write with insults and invectives.

I would love to have a copy of anything your write.  If you will copy your emails to tom@calamityhill.com, I will read it and, if I agree, will also send the text to your representative (and maybe mine).

Hope you like this new feature on my blog.
