Last Wednesday, when this whole Rhea County silliness hit the fan, I sent Tommy Kilby an email asking if he had any comment on their actions. I got a reply today, nothing big, just a two-line response pointing out that they've rescinded their resolution, but it was an actual response.

Just think about that for a minute. I'm in Illinois; he's in Tennessee, and not a US senator, the state senator. I'd never heard of him before, shot off a message to him in ten minutes, and got a response just a few days later!

I know I'm a nerd, and get excited about these things, but can you imagine doing this before there was an Internet? It really is a revolutionary communications medium.
