This afternoon, I attended a Town Hall meeting with our Congressman, John
Hall.  We're lucky- as a former musician with copyrights of his own, he's
sympathetic- I spent an enjoyable 20 minutes or so walking one of his
aides through some of the catastrophic changes that will occur to
copyright law if this passes, and the aide seemed surprised, and
interested in gettting more information, which I'm glad to send him.

If any of your Reps or Senators are in town having Town Hall meetings, go
see them, and be ready with a short explanation of the problem. If it's
too long of a wait to speak directly with your rep, I've found
Congressional aides are there to help, and you can have a little more of
their time, and it will move up the chain. It certainly will help if we
are proactive, and plant the seeds of resistance before the ball gets
rolling again.

Some of the freshman won't even have opinions about it yet, and why not
give them yours first?

When is spring coming?
