I wrote a nastygram to the local congresscritter about the cap and trade fiasco. My main concern was they were voting on something they were clueless about. Not really a big issue. (My congresscritter is Earl Bluemenauer, who has not only divorced reality, but refuses to cash reality's alimony checks) Anyway, I got a letter back from him. My letter was, I admit, not friendly and barely polite. But his response back was dismissive and insulting. I had a lot better luck writing to Senator's Hatfield and Packwood back in the day. The letters both ways were friendly, courteous and responsive, even if they they said no. (Not that many letters, I will admit. I am not that much of a goof) If, over the years, you have written congresscritters, what has been your luck with it?
