Sitting in a local coffee shop and reading some of the comments I was struck by GOK’s suggestion that blogging is fine but isn’t there something else we can do beyond talking to ourselves and airing our woes. I’ve wondered at that myself. I’m writing about it here because I think what I’m going to suggest is something. It is actually beyond the subject matter of this blog but will fit right into my other one, hubgab.
To do this I believe I will need the help of 10 others who have an interest in the matter. Here’s what would happen. One of the matters that is discussed in this blog would be set out in post in that one, for instance the situation involving Mark Rossetti. I would spell out some of the facts relating to him and the FBI and hope that any who participate might find other facts. I would then ask as least ten other people aside from myself to write a letter to a specific person, in Rossetti’s case it would be the SAC of the Boston FBI office (I’d set out his name and address) . Each person would use her own style and words to ask the one question which we want answered. We would then use snail mail to send the letter and would post the letter we sent in the comment section. You’d have to use your correct name in the mailing so some of you who write under an alias would have to surface. You wouldn’t have to use your correct name in the comment section though.
When you received a reply, if you do, you’d also post that in the comment section. All the replies might be the same, but then again they may not. It wouldn’t be doing too much but it would be baby step beyond blogging.
If you are interested in doing something like this let me know. I’d think, as I said, we’d need a minimum of 10 people and we’d need to ensure that whoever agreed actually came through by writing the letter, stamping it and getting it to a post office.
