    but can't find an Obama headquarters in Atlanta. One is listed but the phone's not hooked up, and I've received no emails back from them or the GA Democrats.

    I can't believe they're making it so hard to volunteer! And I've been persistent -- think of all the people who just gave up.

    It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.

      They're swamped!

      Stop by and ask to speak  to the volunteer coordinator or the manager.

      They need you. But it's hard to keep up with everything gushing in.

      In fact, you can offer to help return calls, emails and schedule volunteers.

      There is obviously a need there. While OFA is more organized than most campaigns, its still a political campaign. By that, I mean, don't expect corporate efficiency.

      Don't wait for a phone call.Step up!

      (And yes, my local OFA office is about 40 min away, not allowing for traffic delays. It's not convenient. I figure its my duty, and if I'm inconvenience, so be it.)

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
