Action Day 24: Procrastinate comment-writing by calling my congressman.

Alexis Lieberman reminded me again how easy it is to call, and how much I love both 5calls.org and my Rep, Dwight Evans (202-225-4001), whose voting plans aligned perfectly, like stars in a galaxy, with these four important items: 1.
