as if what the country now faces is not a decision but the disclosure of a
fate. The nation marches as if in a trance to war. opposition to the war.
In the Senate, Robert Byrd has mounted a campaign against the version of the
resolution already proposed by the Bush Administration. He has said that the
resolution's unconstitutionality will prevent him from voting for it. But I am
finding, he adds, that the Constitution is irrelevant to people of this

Administration. The Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to the Washington Post,
oppose the war. Polls and news stories reveal a divided and uncertain public. Yet debate in
your chambers is restricted to peripheral questions, such as the timing of the
vote, or the resolution's precise scope. You are a deliberative body, but
you do not deliberate. You are representatives, but you do not represent.
The silence of those of you in the Democratic Party is especially troubling.
You are the opposition party, but you do not oppose. Raising the subject of
the war, your political advisers tell you, will distract from the domestic

issues that favor the party's chances in the forthcoming Congressional election.
In the face of the Administration's pre-emptive war, your leaders have resorted
to pre-emptive surrender. For the sake of staying in power, you are told,
you must not exercise the power you have in the matter of the war. What, then,
is the purpose of your re-election? If you succeed, you will already have
thrown away the power you supposedly have won. You will be members of Congress,
but Congress will not be Congress. Even the fortunes of the domestic causes
you favor will depend far more on the decision on the war than on the outcome
of the election. Immigration, Benefits and Grants, Defense and International,

The public's increasing use of e-mail plus anthrax anxiety pushed the volume of e-mail going to
Congress up by 50 percent during 2001, according to the Congressional Management Foundation. House
and Senate offices received about 120 million e-mail messages this year, up from 80 million in 2000,
according to a survey by the foundation and the Congress Online Project.
Because of the discovery of anthrax in Capitol Hill offices and mail rooms, delivery of U.S. mail to all
House office buildings was temporarily suspended. All incoming mail to the Capitol complex now undergoes
irradiation for possible contaminants, a process which slows the delivery of mail.That means that any
constituent who sends a letter to my Washington office may experience a significant delay in response.
Anyone who would like to contact me may do so via phone, email or through one of my district offices.Be
advised that mail coming to my Washington D.C. office will have delays, as our mail continues to be
