Thank you, Senator Boxer
Mood:  energetic
Now Playing: "Revolution" Beatles '68
Topic: Voting Reform is Job One!
I encourage everyone to send a Thank you note to US Senator Barbara Boxer for having the courage to join House Democrats, largely from the Black Causcus, to force a debate and vote in both houses about the election irregularities. She will likely pay a political price for courageously standing alone among US Senators, so she deserves whatever support she can get.

To write to Senator Boxer go to

http://boxer.senate.gov/contact/webform.cfm

This is one of those annoying web forms, but I think this is the best way to reach her.

You can also write to her
Washington DC office at
112 Hart Senate Office Building,
Washington, D.C. 20510
or call (202) 224-3553
or try senator@boxer.senate.gov

I still like Hillary, but I would sooner support Barbara Boxer for President in 2008. What do you think?

If you want to write to our esteemed Senators, you can try these addresses.
US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
senator@clinton.senate.gov or http://clinton.senate.gov

US Senator Charles Schumer
senator@schumer.senate.gov or http://schumer.senate.gov

They also have webforms. You can question why they did not vote with Barbara on Thursday, as she was the lone Senator to vote against accepting the Ohio result, or you can be positive and just let them know how essential it is to reform our voting process, so that the results of an election are beyond the shadow of a doubt. For talking points regarding voting reform go to

Latest from Michael Moore includes a brief run down of the congressional vote to question the Ohio vote last Thursday. I wish I had stayed home and watched the debate on C-Span, as it got little coverage in the media.

Go to Mike's site at
video clips and transcripts or

On his latest news page, he also has an article about Kerry's visit to Iraq and the middle east.

Finally, see the letter I sent to Larry King regarding his pandering to the religiously intolerant.

Go to: http://pencandle.tripod.com/Reclaim/lettertolarryking.htm

The text of the letter largely comes from something passed on to me by others regarding Dr. Laura's fundamentalist interpretation of the Bible. I suggested to Larry that he ask these questions of anyone who has the same intolerant views, like Dr. Bob Jones and Dr. Dodson. You too, can write to Larry King at
