Snowed-in In Seattle

Guest Update By Man of American Dissent

It’s funny how less than an inch of snow and a touch of ice can shut down a major American city. As you may have read (or seen on Monday Night Football) we’re in a winter wonderland. LGND is “snowed in” with a spotty internet connection (thanks, Comcast) and some kids who are delighted to have a Snow Day. She’s going to be posting something as soon as possible.

Hi! Remember when the two of us got together at the Tea House Kuan Yin after meeting on Smirking Chimp? I'm taking advantage of my snow day to send out notices about a small project I dreamed up just after the election: Orgies of Correspondence. That means getting a group of us liberals together for frenzied and passionate letter-writing to our members of Congress. We need to hold their feet to the fire! If you could publicize this on your blog, I would be grateful. I'll call it a success if even four people come, and I hope you'll be one of them. Here is the letter I've been sending out:

Orgies of Correspondence

The Democrats control Congress. The question is, will they wimp out again? One thing that helps keep the pressure on is letters to our members of Congress: physical letters, individually composed, on paper, and stuffed in envelopes with stamps. E-mail messaging is too easy; it doesn’t impress anyone. Let’s get together at a local tea house with stationary, pens, envelopes, and stamps, then we can all write individual letters to our members of Congress and to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. I’ll even pay for the tea.

I suggest as subjects: (1) the need to repeal the Military Commissions Act and the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, and (2) the need to investigate the Bush Administration, impeachment or no impeachment. Take your pick, write two letters, or write about something else altogether.

The first Orgy will be on Thursday, December 7, at the Floating Leaves Tea House, 2213 NW Market Street, Suite 100, in downtown Ballard. I’ll be there at 6:30. Citizen activism, a chance for face-to-face socializing, and some really top-notch tea. Who could ask for anything more?
