    I wrote to Feinstein about saying no to torture by saying no to Gonzalez.  You probably know that she did exactly that.  Does it do any good to applaud her action after the fact by writing again thanking her?
    •  thanks good (none)
      Can't hurt, I say. But I'm not one of those insiders.

      I think I remember reading maybe in the Wellstone book about reps being surprised on certain occasions NOT to hear from people. I think they really do gauge public response from mail/calls.

      I have been thinking about sending a few thank yous out for the Gonzales thang, too.
