Snail mail? For the Mac President? Puh-leese.



Don't ever send e-mails to politicians. They don't pay attention to them because they don't take effort to send. The calculus (this is according to Clay Shirky anyway) is that every snail mail letter send represents 1000 people who feel similarly. An e-mail is just an e-mail.


While good public policy can lead to a more vigorous and well-funded art world, you're right - a country which has a government based on puritanical values is never going to grant the arts the credence they deserve in terms of quality of life issues.
That being said - dudes, write a letter *and* an email. There really is no such thing as too much, in terms of getting our voices heard.


Good points all.
