Dear Doug and the LBOers,

It was brought to my attention by the former(?) Democrat chairman of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, that the good people of the county had elected a decent and fairly enlightened Democrat as their represenative in congress. I don't know if you are familiar with Montgomery county, it's big olde Philadelphia money and Republicans outnumber Democrats by at least 60% to 40%.

Of course, Lucky Eddie Rendell may have somthing to do with this too.

Sincerely, Tom L.
