Representative John P. Murtha, READ THIS

Thursday, I attempted to send an email to the Honorable Mr. Murtha from Pennsylvania. That email bounced. I tried a different email address this morning. That one bounced, too. How in the world can a member of congress know what his/her constituents thinks if there is no way to contact them except by snail mail or telephone? Mr. Murtha, please catch up with the times. I'm sure you have some staffers who understand how this internet thing that Mr. Gore came up with works. If you are one of Mr. Murtha's staffers, please pass this message along to him

Mr Murtha,

First, let me begin by thanking you for your service in Viet Nam. I, too, am a veteran. During my 21 years in the Air Force the Soviet Union fell, we drove Sadam out of Kuwait, and we struck back against the terrorists who attacked us on our homeland for the first time since the war of 1812.

I have to say, I believe you're comments are short sighted and just wrong. I fully support our current actions in Iraq. I won't go into details in this email, but if you want to know my opinion about this, please go to my blog at‑day.html. That should fully explain my feelings.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my message. If you would like to contact me, you can email me at

Somehow, I don't think he'll get this message.

Last night, I attended the dining out at the University of Maryland for Detachment 330. Great job, guys. My wife and I both had a great time, and the expressions on your faces when you each saw me for the first time was priceless.

Well, it's early, and I'm writing this in the dark in the hotel room in College Park while my wife is still sleeping (Boy, I'm a geek). My batteries are running down, so I'll close this for now and maybe post more later.
