Our Colorado pal, Melissa, whose delightful, wholesome, homespun web site I occasionally go to for a reminder of what's really important in life (she posts wonderful photos of her talented kids, talks about travels around the state, gives recipes, quotes her toddler's emerging worldview, etc.), has taken a foray into political commentary.
She modestly suggests that it may be her last, as well as her first, such column but I think she's got a flair for it.
See if you don't agree. Indeed, see if her comments about H.R. 1444 and its creation of a Congressional Commission on Civil Service don't prompt you to write your Congressman ASAP.
Good job, Melissa.
