    Still, it gets kind of depressing to know that you're speaking to a 20 year old intern who may not give a damn or jokes with their friends about those crazy constituents who keep calling. Most pols only care about issues that have major donor support or that poll strongly and it takes an awful lot of calls from non-repeat callers to get their attention. Most of these calls don't register, I'm guessing. We live in very cynical times and it's hard to break through.

      than clicking on an online petition. I don't mind about the disengaged intern, so long as they note my call.
