Alright. I'll admit it. I'm one of those who writes his Congressmen a fair amount and, for my efforts, I typically get a bunch of constituent mail in response. You know... the long, boring form letters Congressmen respond with about three months after you write. They are supposedly "personalized" by interns, but (in my case at least), rarely seem to be on point.
It's seldom that I get back an interesting response, much less an entertaining one. Which is why I felt a little shafted when I read about this engaging letter recently sent by Missouri Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson. It just came right out and said what most of mine seem to be saying underhandedly.
Not receiving such scintillating correspondence from my Congressional delegation is probably best now that I think about it though. Perhaps it's even intentional on the part of my elected officials... they wouldn't want to do anything to encourage me to write more than I already do.
