Focus on Feingold
By Jim Babka
We'll focus our action today. The best way to stop the torture and spying bills is a Senate filibuster, and Senator Feingold is the most likely person to lead it. Give him the courage to do so!

Call 202-224-5323. Tell his staff you want to encourage the Senator to lead a fillibuster against the Torture/Tribunal bill and, especially, the Warrantless Spying bill.

Do you need a big sales pitch to do this? I didn't think so.

Next item: Our subscription list reached a new record yesterday: 22,800! We're growing! But to keep growing we must pay our September bills. There are 5 days left. The need has shrunk to $3,041 -- just 13 cents per subscriber! But not everyone will give, so we need a lot more than 13 cents from those who do contribute. You can make a donation here.

To everyone who has contributed this month . . . You have made a difference, and on behalf of my team and my family, I want to say, "Thank you very much."

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
