The ADA finally realized that they needed to be focusing more on these
very issues, but they can't do it alone. Another reason the other
groups are getting so much more is because they have very vocal
supporters in the rank and file. That's why I urge each of you to get
involved. Write a letter, send an e-mail, make a phone call. It only
takes a few minutes, yet if enough of us make just one contact, the
numbers will add up quickly. GET INVOLVED!!! (please, or I'll remove
you're dot <vbg>)
