A Point

One of my blog readers made a good point yesterday.  He was lamenting the fact that Senator Tom Udall was worried that his emails were running 10 to 1 against any gun control legislation.  Bubba Munster, a.k.a. Frank Conway, wonders why that has anything to do with good government.  So do I.

But if the email volumes are deciding what policy in the U.S. Senate should be then everyone of us needs to send an email to our delegation.  I guess emails equate to common sense now so we need to play the game with some of our more timid Senators and Congressmen.  Yes, all of them.

In the meantime, I am happy to see that Udall's quest to reform the filibuster in the Senate is actually getting traction.  If he can pull that off then there is one less thing to make the DC scene dysfunctional.  We should know if he is successful in a few days.
