My Congressman Uses the Franking Privilege to Amuse and Terrify Me

I've already mentioned that my congressman is a crackpot, right? Totally nuts? Otherwise, he wouldn't let this crazy stream of consciousness rant be mailed out to every home in his district.

So I just wanted to let you know: There is no recession here in this district, as evidenced by the fact that people are still subscribing to cable TV and yapping on those dang cell phones. In fact, our district (home to the middle-sized city-suburb where I live) is one of the most popular places to move in the U.S. Um, whatever.

Making me fear for my own sanity, my congressman agrees with me about the money spent on the War on Terror. He also feels that beyond a certain point we should devote some resources to, say, preventable diseases that are killing a lot more people or automobile safety.
