    The most important Congressional issue is the state of their campaign war-chest.

    That always gets their undivided attention.

    Start putting the hurt on that.

    Contact your representatives.

    And that is it. It is shut down. It happened while I was reading it! LOL

    But they won't know who to invade if they can't look up countries on Wikipedia.

    The Internet's dying is the biggest of deals. It saves researchers thousands of work-hours that once were spent in libraries.
