Well, with the legislative session winding down, any House hearing would 
have to be within the next day or two. Would you be willing to come testify?

I mean Cliff especially, but who else would be available to go cram a 
hearing in an hour's notice?

Of course, if you'd all like to give it a another try now, well, go 
e-mail your State Reps and Senators. Have your friends do it. What the hell.


PS If you have still yet to add your representatives to your e-mail 
address book, go look it up and then add it.
