Some of you who were part of the TS/S crew may have remembered the letter I wrote to Dick Durbin back in March. It got pretty high accolades from TS/S and people encouraged me to send it but also consider submitting it to a paper as an op-ed. Alas I never got around to doing the latter, but I received a response from Sen. Durbin tonight. I have to say I'm disappointed - it's rather wishy-washy and noncommital. I do plan on responding and addressing key points so he knows I'm paying attention and will not be satisfied with a form letter, but it's a bit late tonight and I want to take my time and craft it well. Suggestions are welcome, and I wanted to make sure to post a record of the reply.
