"I used to work in D.C., and in D.C. there are two ways to get things done: one - you have to have a lot of money and hire a lot of lobbyists, and two - you need to have a lot of people."

"Contacting legislators is not like voting- you can do it early and you can do it often." -- Steph Larsen on Greenhorn Radio
