Another one from the SacredBull political satire list, sometime in the spring of 1997. Also another one by my significant other and me.
We at SacredBull believe wholeheartedly in good citizenship and participatory democracy. Our motto is: The teachings of civics class are eternal. They are as true today as they were when you learned them at your teacher's knee!
Your leaders are always there to serve you, if you just let them. So if you want to change the world, the very, very best way is to ask politely -- the SacredBull way.
To help you contact those great people who work so hard to assure your freedom, here are the e-mail addresses of many of your most prominent and courageous leaders. In this list you'll find people in government and in the many, many, many fine organizations that work hand-in-hand with government to help make a better life for all Americans-including YOU!
Please write to them. Tell them what a good job they're doing, and ask them nicely for all the new laws you want. After all, that's what America's all about!

In addition, the following e-mail addresses have recently been changed:
|Deng Chou Pengfirstname.lastname@example.org|
Please also note that the fine people currently at unitednations.org will soon receive an exciting new domain name -- unitednations.GOV! We'll keep you posted when that happens. Or you can just watch for the attractive blue berets to begin appearing in YOUR neighborhood.
Finally, we have been trying to reach the following individual for some time now and have unfortunately had nothing but a series of bounced messages. If any of you civic minded citizens out there can tell us how to reach this fellow, we sure would appreciate it:
Thank you! We hope you found today's civics lesson very, very useful. And please don't forget to notify us if you locate that Jefferson fellow! We think he could really be of help with our next terrific civics lesson!
