LOL - That made me chuckle. Thanks for that, you always seem to get the zingers out there at the right time.

I'm no expert, I just happen to work with a REALLY knowledgable guy and I ask a lot of annoying questions.

As I am perhaps the least educated member, grammatically challenged, and hopelessly inarticulate, I would be honored to forward any letter that gets the approval of you fine gents.

How many active members do we have, say, who have posted in the last 3 months?

"Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime."

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Well, I sent those last night but I added a little something to the one to Max Baucus. It said
The reason that I am writing this is that I have faith that Montana's system of government is not broken. I have faith that you will do what is right and not merely vote along party lines, but vote for what is best for the people of Montana. Remember that more than just being a Democrat, that you are first and foremost a Montanan. We come from the same hometown, so please, do me, and do Libby proud.

Hey Cane, do you have a quote of the day widget on your computer or something?

Skip back a page, there is a prewritten letter in one of Cane's posts and it has a link to send it to your senators easy as pie. Takes two minutes.

In the last three months?

We have seen a spike in new members, I wonder why , and I would say in a given week we have well over 400 to 500 people posting.... So days, like weekends, are really heavy with 50 or 60 threads that were updated overnight when I log in, in the morning, so maybe even more than that....

Really? Not from what I have seen. Who really uses and understands the word "Hirsute"? You also seem pretty quick witted. Don't short change yourself.

You are kind, McNabb. Truthfully, I never graduated High School. I chose to be a student of the rich pageant of life instead.

I didn't graduate either. Graduation doesn't mean education. Some of our founding fathers were self educated.

WOW I think the two of you are BS'ing us!

I've dealt with MSMEs, MSEE's, PHdME's and PE's that truthfully could not carry your water in an intelligent conversation!

Props bro's!
