I suspect I know most of my loyal readers personally - I don't have many loyal readers. The folks I know
1) generally share my political viewsMost of 'em regard letter-writing and emailing as futile, foolish gestures. Can't say I can argue with 'em, BUT - writing letters & sending emails makes me feel better... and I can't help but believe that if more of us wrote letters, we just might get heard.
2) are generally disdainful of my ineffectual attempts at influence
So: a challenge to my more cynical colleagues.
Even if you don't think it does any good, WRITE A LETTER to President Obama today! (You can copy/paste mine - below!)
... and: ask three of your friends to do the same.
Again - in my heart of hearts, I know this is foolish futility... BUT what if it isn't?
