I sent my letter to Sen. Wyden.
It should go out in Wednesday’s mail.
I sent it to the Washington, DC office.
I wrote it out in blue ink (PaperMate Eagle pen, not expensive, but not so cheap it leaks) instead of just printing it, figuring it might otherwise get lost among all the other black and white computer-generated pages. I printed, because my cursive looks like a first grader’s. (My handprinting at least makes it to fourth grade.) I used lined paper because I can’t write straight on unlined paper to save my life. (When I tried it, I actually wound up with part of a sentence on one piece of paper and part of it on another. Yargh.)
I made some minor changes (cleaned up an editing glitch in the second paragraph), but otherwise it’s what you saw here. It wound up being 5-1/2 handwritten pages (I print pretty big). I even put an extra stamp on the envelope, just in case.
Just reminding y’all, I’ve never, ever done this before. So if I can do it, so can you, if you think you might want to.
If I hear anything, I will update, even if it happens on my official blog hiatus next month.
