My daughter....as a GIF

Last night I was helping synch her iTouch and accidentally backed up all her photos to my computer. Of the 400+ pictures, more than 300 seemed to be various self-portraits.

These two jumped out at me....

Apparently I am going to be seeing our Representative when he comes back to Vermont

February 3, 2012

Dear Christian,

Thank you for contacting me about H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). I appreciate your feedback on this important issue.

Introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, H.R. 3261 would authorize the Attorney General to seek injunctions against foreign websites that steal and sell American products. It is important that Congress strike a careful balance between two important goals: ensuring that the internet remain open and accessible and the protection of intellectual property. H.R. 3261 does not meet this test. I am pleased that Chairman Smith has indicated he will not ask the Judiciary Committee to consider his bill until a consensus can be reached on a better approach.

Please keep in touch. I look forward to seeing you in Vermont soon.
