« Jackson: More Senators Back Bid to Save Terri - We May Have Enough Votes! | Main | Reader's Requests For Comments To Be Posted: Seeking Input »


March 29, 2005

Admin Note: We are checking on the comments now - Updated

Topics: General

We have just been notified that the comments are not working. This is only temporary and we are working on it right now.

Also, we are preparing to add a section for "most recent comments" to help facilitate a more rapid dialogue for brain-storming interaction. In the meanwhile, number one action item is to contact the Senators on the most recent list(see below).

We are one vote away from saving Terri. Pray that she can hang on just a little longer.

Comments will be back asap.

Update: Until the comments are back up, email your info and if it's important enough to post we'll throw up an admin post.

Update 2: Comments back online. Sorry about the interruption of service - Tim.

Update 3 - Senator Call List:

Nothing is impossible for God. Terri will be made whole and I am believing God for that.

Richard, where's the senators list?

I could locate no email address for Daniel Webster, but here's the rest of the Florida Senate:

The following senators' voice mailboxes at the Tallahassee offices are full:

Larcenia Bullard
Lisa Carlton
Jim King


Burt Saunders line has no answer.

From the flsenate.gov home page:
"The Senate will convene on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 from 9:00 a.m.—11:30 a.m., or upon the Call of the President."
That's 0600 Pacific time, people. No time to waste!

More senators to call:
Sen. Tom Lee, President of the Senate: (850) 487-5072
Sen. Daniel Webster, the author of the original bill, who now seems to be losing heart (cheer him up nicely!): (850) 487-5047

I would also call all the Senators in the Black Caucus that were lobbied by Rev. Jackson, according to the AP news article. There's no listing, but here's my best guess as to who might have gotten the Rev.'s calls:
Sen. Larcenia Bullard (D): (850) 487-5127
Sen. M. Mandy Dawson (D): (850) 487-5112
Sen. Alfred Lawson, Jr. (D): (850) 487-5004
Sen. Lesley Miller, Jr. (D): (850) 487-5059
Sen. Gary Siplin (D): (850) 487-5190 (per AP article, he probably won't change his mind)
Sen. Frederica Wilson (D): (850) 487-5116

The comments still aren't working well. when I ask it to submit my password, it doesn't sign me in. if i click no, it allows me to post one message, then kicks me back out!!

Oh well.

As for the legislature thing, it is my understanding that Republicans themselves are backing off. I wouldn't put too much stock into this Jesse Jackson thing. False hope, I think--i hope notthough!

Mike - comments appear to working find ... you may have to hit F5 after signing in.
