I got a reply from the White House…

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence. We
appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions. Due to
the large volume of e-mail received, the White House is unable to
respond to every message, and therefore this response is an autoreply.

They seem preoccupied, don’t they.

Various friends who think I’m a shill for Bush despite my repeated denials take note; I’m more annoyed with the administration today than usual. See if you can get a pollster to call me and I’ll go in the dissatisfied column.
