It will be a sad day when Senator Lugar no longer represents the State of Indiana. He is one of the finest men I have had the pleasure to meet. His legacy will forever be a positive one, not only for Indiana, but for the world as a whole. I-465 should be renamed after him. The State should put up a statue to him. He is the only politician I have met in public that was present when talking to me.
I have written to his office many times and always get an answer.
Here is the difference between Lugar and anyone else I have written – he addresses the issue. He does not always agree with me. But, he always addresses the issue.
In the case of my letter regarding the Testical Squeezing Authority (TSA), he says, “I agree that our policies must strike a careful balance between security and individual freedoms and privacy. A number of recently implemented TSA security measures have caused some disruptions, inconveniences, and privacy concerns. Important questions have been raised about the ultimate effectiveness and appropriateness of these procedures.” In the meantime, “I have taken the liberty of forwarding a copy of your letter directly to the TSA and have requested a response.”
For anyone reading this who would like to represent your state in Washington, this is how it is done. (Although, now that my letter was forwarded, I guess my testes will get a squeezing).
