    Thanks for the summary. This will help me compose the letter I plan to write to the President this weekend. Heck, what have I got to loose. I just have to figure out where that webpage it for receiving communication.

    If I manage to get it done this weekend I'll post it here. If anyone knows where the White House contact portal is, please let me know.
