Why we should all send e-mail/snailmail to our legislators

It's summer.  It's hot.  Damn hot. But I take it you're reading Emily's Virtual Rocket, so really, there's no excuse.  Whether your legislator is Democratic or Republican, I need you to keep the pressure on. I need you to make marriage legal, whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. I need you to put pressure on them to get their faces to a GLBT pride parade and speak. And if some yahoos give you a hard time, pressure them to get the police off their asses.

In other words, we deserve to be treated like fucking human beings!!!

In this new blog, I will list members of the House of Representatives on a semi-random basis.  Please, e-write that member in a polite but FIRM letter.  If you have a specific example, so much the better.

Mountain View, California - Anna Eshoo(D) - 14th CA
Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Gwen Moore(D) - 4th WI
Atlanta, Georgia - John Lewis(D)/David Scott(D) - 5th-/13th GA
Morgan Hill, California -  Jerry McInerny(D) - 11th CA
Cleveland, Ohio - Dennis Kucinich(D)/Marcia Fudge(D) - 10th/11th OH
Saint Louis, Missouri - Lacy Clay(D)/Mel Carnahan(D) - 1st/3rd MO
Simi Valley, California - Elton Gallegy(R) - 24th CA
Windsor, California - Mike Thompson(D) - 1st CA
Wilmette, Illinois - Jan Schakowsky (D) - 9th IL

Thanks in advance.
