From the Mailbox...

Got this e-mail this afternoon:

Subject : Rep. Jim Gibbons thanks you for Supporting Our Troops

Dear Friend,

Thank you for participating in the "Support Our Troops" campaign. Please know that with the help of the Department of Defense, your thoughtful sentiments and words of support will be delivered directly to our brave armed services personnel who are actively fighting to protect our freedom and security.

There is no doubt that the morale of our military men and women is integral to ensuring victory for our nation. Thank you for your efforts in seeing that this goal is achieved.

Please monitor my website (www.house.gov/gibbons) in the weeks ahead as I highlight innovative ways that you, your family, friends and co-workers can continue to "Support Our Troops."

God Bless America,

U.S. Congressman Jim Gibbons
Thank Rep. Jim Gibbons (R-Nev)! And thanks to whomever signed me up for this. 'Twas a good practical joke.

Anyway, this is good reminder that you should be skeptical whenever you hear a politican say, "20,000 people have sent letters to us supporting our initiative." Because, without knowing it, you could be one of those 20,000 people.
