It's a good thing they put this sign up.  I'm sure it's all that has stopped me from keying every car in the lot.


How long-winded do you have to be to write a "Idiot's Guide" to a plain-text, easy-to-understand document?  This is a 200 page book to explain a 3 page document.

Quote of the Day

Remember: If you are prepared for the dead to walk the earth in search of human brains, then a hurricane or attempted mugging is no big deal.

Influencing Politicians

I seem to be on a TED kick. It must be the 50+ videos I have queued.

Letter formula:
Paragraph 1: Show your appreciation, even if it's just appreciation for having a hard job.
Paragraph 2: Get to the point. Don't attack the person, attack his tactics.
Paragraph 3: Provide a fix.
Paragraph 4: Offer to help.
Sign it with your title to demonstrate that you can help with his influence and personal perservation.

Finally, mail the original to the district office and a copy to the main office to get your letter into the politician's actual to-do pile.

I've got 50+ TED videos in my newsreader right now.
