(update: if you put this applet on your site before July 31, please be aware that Internet Explorer on the pc - quite a few use this :) - will not display it. Get the revised code here)
The latest cool way to make it easy for folks to email their senators about DOPA comes from Brian Grenier at Bump on the Blog. Place a piece of code on your blog or web site and you get this Flash applet:
After the user clicks on the icon he/she is prompted to fill in name, city, choose a state, and "Click to send". The computer's default email program then launches this message (I filled out Mark Ahlness, Seattle, and chose Washington). It can be customized before sending. It is of course addressed to the two senators from the selected state. Thanks Brian!
