A Letter to Washington, DC

The following is the text of a letter I just sent to my elected officials in the U.S. Congress: a Senator in the Democratic Party, a Senator and a Represenatative in the Republican Party. If I get any answers I will post them.

Dear Congressperson:

As I know you are aware, there is great opposition to the proposed sale of U.S. ports to a foreign government. This issue has unified our country in a unique way.

At the supermarket, the barbershop and over the backyard fence everyone I talk with, whether a conservative, liberal or a moderate, thinks this is a dangerous, bad idea for the United States.

I see on the news that now there will be more time to consider the sale. Why do we need more time? What is there to consider? It will still be bad for America—next week, next month, next year.

Please do what you can to keep the sale from happening.

I am back at the blog

After nearly two months I am back blogging and this time with a mission.

I am going to learn as much as I can about this whole extended blog thing. And RSS. And maybe Podcasts, too. All the techies in the Blogosphere appear to know everything about every buzz-filled niblet of web and blog jargon. And act like they always did.


To start with I am finding lot of great information and help right here on the web. And in other blogs. So check in now and then. Perhaps you are also still learning.

On the sidebar I will collect helpful blogs about blogging. To start with here's a really good one, Bloggers Blog, "Blogging the Blogosphere: reporting on blogging news and trends." Bye for now I am going to go and check it out.
