    This

    is a red letter day!

    If you have a second, you might send your thanks to Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, who has been so determined to fight this fight for us.

    And while you're at it, cc Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who has been so determined to make sure this day never came. He loses, finally.

    Offtopic-Had to laugh at/with Duran. Don't you HATE it when you innocently use some phrase you were raised with, and it hurts someone's feelings, when the last thing you meant to do was slur anyone?

    If I had a dollar for every time I've done that, I'd buy a nice celebration dinner tonight.

    I don't THINK Yank is a slur..but I've been wrong before!

    I need guidance on what comes next, also. If I happen to hear any, I'll pass it along here.

    Good work, fellow advocates! We need to all be patting ourselves and our buddies on the back. Our 10,000 letters, calls and visits didn't go down The Black Hole after all! All the money we spent on trips to DC, all the politicians that invested their time in supporting us...This feels like a dream to me.

    I read a stat once, wish I could remember exactly. It said that only 1 in a thousand bills that are introduced to Congress are ever passed into law, I think? We beat the odds on a phenomenal scale with this one, for sure.

    I wish Christopher and Dana Reeve were here to see it. I never met him but she was so proud of us at the first rally, when she spoke about how much it was needed and how she knew it was really hard for us to travel to DC. And I wish Dogger was here...the only Aussie that ever went to DC to support us in lobbying for the CDRPA.

    Don't mean to be a downer. It sucks when people deserve to see something through and they don't get to...
