Senator Begich's letter to Mr. Rauwolf must have been a mass-mailing since I received it too. I also had e-mailed the Senator a few days earlier and assumed the letter was a response to that. The disconnect from constituents and reality is truly astounding.

While I couldn't construct a letter as cogent as Mr. Rauwolf, I do want to associate myself with his remarks. We the people must keep the pressure on our elected employees; unfortunately it'll be five years 'til Senator Begich can be held to electoral account.

Another Angry Voter,
