This post is to show you naysayers that when you speak your mind to politicians, your voice is heard. If you are lucky your voice resonates strongly with the politician as it did in my case. Was it my articulate prose, or my concise argument that moved Diane Feinstein to such a response? I may never know, but I am proud to show the world that my political concerns matter, and that Diane Feinstein truly cares about Californians. My emphasis has been added.
