Sorry for the abbreviated postings -- my treo had a seizure and now is almost dead. Springfield blogging didn't go very well.
But this is the time to call your state legislator and ask him or her to introduce a bill. They are hungry for good ideas, as they are ridiculously under-staffed. The next big Democratic ideas are going to come from Springfield or Olympia or Boston or Providence, not from D.C. So get on the phone and start pitching some bills!
