Re: I apologise ...

I thought he pulled his support.

I noticed Mikulski is quiet about it.

He said he would not vote for it in it's present format, but still co-sponsors PIPA.

EDIT: After further research I see that he did in fact drop co-sponsorship for PIPA early yesterday afternoon, and now opposes it; "after hearing from constituents". I'm glad he finally saw the light.

Outside of the Google petition I didn't bother contacting either of them. Babs doesn't care about you if don't in Montgomery, PG or Baltimore counties or in Baltimore itself. Cardin might just send me a form letter thanking me for contacting him but that's about it.

Yeah ... I got one of those form letters about a month or so ago when I sent him a letter about his short-sighted sponsorship of PIPA. I agree about our representatives only caring about their backyard constituents ... after all, they still seem to consider us here on the Shore as the "shithouse of an Eastern Shore".

I remember seeing a bumper sticker to that effect, on a car with a Delaware license plate.

That comment alienated a lot of people in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia (DelMarVa) and somewhat resurrected the talk on the Eastern Shore of seceding from the Union.

Yup, same here. After getting the identical form letter concerning two different tech-related issues, I've given up on any kind of meaningful dialogue with the officials I didn't elect (and yes, I vote *grin*).

You guys gotta embrace the term... I can understand the term "shithouse" is in itself quite offensive and caustic... but you can call me a proud Fredneck any day of the week.

They should because without Ocean City, Maryland would have to really work at raising revenues. O'Malley knows they hate him over there but what does he care, he relies on votes from Baltimore City, PG and Montgomery Counties.
