A friend has started a new blog this week. Her goal: a letter a day to public officials with the goal of motivating positive change. It's a worthy goal, indeed, and she has some good ideas. Check it out, and write some letters of your own if you have ideas to share with our elected officials.
Another friend raised a point regarding Barack Obama. As much as it does not thrill us, Shrub is still president until 1/20/09. Barack Obama needs time to assemble his cabinet and prepare to take on the enormous responsibility of his new job. He may be gathering ideas now, but he won't be acting on them just yet.
