Your Congresscritter on the Information Highway (Thomas B. Cox)
(chuckle, government, computers)

As the US Government prepares to spend billions of our taxpayer dollars
on this vital Information Highway thing, I was encouraged to see that my
very own Representative (the Honorable Elizabeth Furse) is learning to
use the Net.

Specifically, her staff have been posting Rep. Furse's congressional
speeches to or.politics.

I wrote to her staff, thanking them for the postings.

This is the letter I got back.  I swear I am not making any of this up.
