Something you should know. I come from a family line of letter writers. (Not the friendly, correspondence between pen pals.) I mean the ones to politicians and "responsible" folks who are supposed to get things done.
I never planned on taking up the pen. In fact, I kind of poo-poo'ed the idea. Until I became a farmer. That's when I realized I needed to speak up.
But I go to bed wondering - who is listening?
Apparently, not the President. Yeah, I've been writing to Barack. Every day. And I really shouldn't be on a first name basis, because, actually, he has never written back.
Not that I actually expected a response. I'm not THAT loopy. But some sort of response just to show me someone is actually opening the mail in Washington and not using it to fuel the White House furnace - would be nice.
I've sent somewhere in the neighborhood of 5o letters. You'd think that many letters would at least earn me a computer-generated response. A polite, milk toast form letter telling me about all the wonderful things Barack is doing for our country.
But he's not even listening.
Am I stopping? Nope.
It's not called "harderthanitlooks" for nothing. But if you wanted to join in...why, who am I to stop you? I'm thinking of doubling my efforts...
