It’s Just Like Writing To Santa!

So, my brother writes to Obama regarding the Prosecutors and Defenders Incentive Act (which helps pay off some of the steep law school bills for attorneys who are serving the public) and he gets a response back. Which is no big whoop, I know. But I’ve sent lots of internet letter thingies to my Reps and never hear so much as a peep. Now, Senator Obama on the other hand, handles it perfectly — he acknowledges the delay in response and asks him to stay in touch! I am not an idiot — I know some intern composed the email, but I have to say it has a nice personal flaire. He at least hired an intern who makes him sound human. It kind of reminds me of when we would leave a note for Santa on Christmas Eve and ask him questions in order to confirm he existed. There would always be a note in the morning answering every one. I now know that it was my Dad, but it was the effort that counts, you know? Yes, Virginia! There is a Senator who will write you back! Barak’s email is after the jump.
