There are over a quarter-billion Americans out there, and the Government doesn't give a flying f*** what any of us think.
I'm an aerospace engineer with 30 years' experience, and I had an idea years ago about how to find the car-bombers in Iraq using just TV cameras, cell phones, and computers. I was working for the largest aerospace company in the world, and I approached our "spookiest" gov't rep with a briefing on the concept, and he flat-out couldn't care less. Didn't even return any of my e-mails, even though I'd been recommended by our Homeland Security focus.
I also e-mailed the same briefing to the White House, the CIA, one of my state's senators, and talked about it here, and on other popular blogs just in case they got read by someone who could pass the idea along.
Nothing. Nada. Zip.
I figure if *I* can't get the CIA to read an e-mail sent directly to them, that they aren't going out of their way to try to find out what's going on in Joe Sixpack's mind.
Dats cause you didn't use key words that might pique their interest.

I like how he was somehow able to add a smiley and his initials and hit Add Reply after they broke through his door and forced him to hit the Z key a bunch of times. That, my friends, is an example of someone remaining calm under fire.

At the risk of Arguing from Authority, I can honestly say that I've felt Mary, and she feels pretty good.
