Lazy Congress 

Editor,

I am a huge fan of Kevin Burkhalter’s comic strip, Still Life. I’ve been reading Connect Savannah for 5 years now and I am thrilled to see a comic that explores what its like to be an artist. In a creative town, like Savannah, it’s nice to finally see our niche highlighted.

Still a Fan for Life

Lazy Congress

Editor:

The members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been working in Washington on 41 of the first 127 days of this year.

They are planning to be in session half of the remaining weeks.

How long would you keep your job if you worked like that?

Even when they show up they fail to address the biggest problems facing the country.

It would take a 50 percent tax increase in order to balance the so called budget yet they are avoiding the problem while the debt grows by $1200 billion per year.

The real problem is you and I let them get away with it.  They work for us and we pay them $174,000 per year to do it. 
Make a commitment to write or call your representative once a week and express your views.

See how they respond and let that be your guide to voting this November.

    Does the police department, or the Mayor's office seek to know us, to reward us with some gesture of support for our plight, some acknowledgement that we very much matter to the level of success and peacefulness that does exists in Savannah?
