I Called Government!
The other was tonight, when I called the local office for Congressman Berman (I think it is he and not Brad Sherman but since the US House's web site has crashed, I can't verify where the lastest episode of Gerrymandering has left me).
I simply asked that they pass a reform plan. I also requested that he ask Madame Speaker to keep her opinions to herself and not engage in petty politics the next time around.
The drop in the stock market today is 50% less than the entire projected cost of the 'bailout'.
