From KOS:

Baucus exaggerates mail delay, blames Postmaster

What a sorry excuse for not wanting to answer your mail.

Senator Max Baucus is running from the public's demand for a strong public option, and hiding behind any excuse he can fabricate from the tiniest thread.

While most of us here rely heavily on the internet and email to communicate with our representatives, many people still make use of the USPS mail service. If we write and send a letter, we deserve a response.

Rather than face that responsibility, Max Baucus would prefer to pass the blame onto dedicated civil servants.

1. When politicians call us "folks", instead of constituants, I get irritated.
Folks are my family members. These public servants are not my family. When I hear "folks", someones is trying to sell me something I won't want.
