Suggested "Did You Know...." entry for your local paper.

Suggested text to send to your local paper to encourage popular political participation.
Dear Folks:

I recently read that Nancy Pelosi shat her delicate pants when her office received 200,000 angry communications on the same subject, which one I forget. As we all know, many people are politically paralyzed, so I sent the following text to my local paper, do with it what you will:

"Did you know that it only takes 200,000 serious letters, phone calls and emails to influence Congressional leadership to change policy? That's less than 1/10 of 1% of the population! The only reason it doesn't happen more is that many people don't believe they can make a difference. That is false! You could look up your Representatives' contact information on C-Span.org or Congress.org right now. Let them know what you want them to do today!"

Best to all Wat
