    Senator Cantwell

    I wrote to Senator Cantwell tonight. A brief of my son Michael's story and asked for her support of CRPA. It was easy.

    I emailed Sen. Cantwell friday after Bethany alerted me that she was NOT a co-sponsor. I haven't heard back from her yet. I'll post as soon as I get a response.

    If she has not re-upped, I think I'll write some letters that others can send: my voting age daughters, son-in-law, good friends, other relatives. Then they can just cut and paste and hit send! I have in the past sent the link from CRF to others, but I don't believe anyone has acted on it. I think a more personal approach will work.

    How do you email a legislator if you are not in their district? I tried this before, but before I could email, I was asked my address, then referred elsewhere.

    You find out which zip code is theirs (check the address for their district office) and use that.
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    "PW", Joe?

    Joe, From DC you take the Metro to Crystal City Radison. Is PW= Power wheelchair? At Crystal City you can probably get a cab or van from the Metro.
    Every day I wake up is a good one
