    In light of the high frequency of letter-worthy occurrences of late (Andrea Abbott, Yukari Miyamae, Thomas Sawyer Part Deux, ORD gropedown, implant bombs, MMW ATR lies...) I'm thinking it would be good for us to have a master list/one-stop shop for addresses of political/Congressional/local/etc. contacts for those who wish to write letters.

    Also, if someone here is particularly adept at mass-mailing procedures (mail merge, I think it's called?) maybe a quickie tutorial would be good to post so paper mailings can be quickly put together. I've not done them before but I can learn and post one if nobody else is a mail-merge guru.

    Also, I realize that this volume of information could get unwieldy fast, so if anyone has any ideas on how best to organize it so it's neat and clean whilst also offering the relevant details in a minimum of clicks, please share. The first thing that comes to mind would be a political-contact wiki but I've never set one up and I'm not sure that it would be worth it for this site.

    Also, I'm thinking we may want to offer a quick way for people to find out who their representatives are by district. Basically a way to figure out which of these numbers applies to them.

    Any ideas on how to take as much gruntwork as possible out of the political-correspondence process are welcome.

    That said...

    I appreciate these efforts. People can ID their electeds easily. Here is one means: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

    I would like to see a list of known FSD, AFSD and other TSA contacts. I have a few I am willing to share.

    Oh, sweet.

    Okay, maybe we should convert this thread into more of a how-to/tutorial discussion then. Who to contact when, about what, how to present the argument, etc. Thoughts?
