Nobby raises a good idea:

maybe a few of us can get together and do a quick letter writing campaign?
We have all seen the power of public opinion. If the proponents of an idea sit in silence, nothing will ever change.

Nobby, if you do organize something like this I will definitely contribute a letter.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)
