One Thing I Can Do for Health Reform

On Saturday, I tried to contribute to my local chapter by hosting a letter-writing party. No one else showed up, but I still thought I could pass on what I've written to use as inspiration or as one of many example letters out there. We may disagree on details of legislation, but we cannot abide the status quo any longer. Please get active in your advocacy, folks!

Dear Congressperson:

First of all, I do want to express my gratitude for your service to our community and your concern for responsible government. I am writing today on the topic of health care reform.

Superlative is Sometimes Less

There are three seemingly random thoughts here, but hang on. Bear with me. I think they come together at the end.


I have had numerous people ask me what it was like to be at last week's inauguration of Barack Obama, and had a very hard time knowing how to answer. It was definitely the most historic inauguration of my lifetime, and perhaps the most important I'm ever likely to see. Except I didn't really see any of it.
