3. I just heard on NPR the other day
If an official receives form-letters or e-mails they get tossed into a huge pile designated for either no reply or a generic "form-reply". However if they receive a heart-felt letter or e-mail that has obviously been created from scratch (or mostly so) they consider it more important. They will take the time to read it and put some effort into a reply. It will also stick in their mind more when they are voting on bills.

That's why, from now on, whenever I have the option to alter the text of petitions or e-mails we send I am going to. I want what I send to have a real impact rather than ending up in a heap of "to be ignored" paperwork.
