theferrett: Dear People In General: "Reach out. Part of whatever goodness we can manage to squeeze from government comes from creating bills that have to endure the give-and-take of debate, that have to acknowledge the other guy has a point, and - God forbid - even address that point sometimes. I'm not saying that you should be centrist, but rather common sensist. I think that's your only hope of retaining that precious power you've been granted, and my hope lies with you."
I wish I'd said that. I hope it will actually happen, but my breath-holding capacity is limited.
