Support The Troops - Write Two Letters

One thing that really pisses me off is seeing those stupid yellow ribbon magnets on cars. Doubly so on a SUV.

Supporting the troops should be just a little more difficult than reaching over the counter, grabbing a magnet (god forbid you damage the paint with a real sticker) out of a display case, and plopping it down on the counter next to your beer and chips.

How about doing this instead: take 5 minutes out of your life (you won't even notice if you write the letter during the commercial breaks in American Idol) and 68 cents out of your budget, and write a letter to your Senator and your Congressman, and ask him to pressure the administration to bring the troops home.

And I don't mean send an email. I mean pull out a pen, and use honest to god handwriting, on real physical paper, stick it in an envelope, and mail it. If you really, really feel strongly about it, in your letter you can tell him that your vote for 2006 (yes, believe it or not, some people actually vote) will rest solely on the response to that letter.
