    Get our Representatives to commit to vote against unposted bills

    It is too late to have the bill posted 5 days before the president signs it. It's an improvement, but I am asking my representatives to delay voting to approve any Bill, ammendment ... until 5 days after ti (they) are posted. That way their vote can be based on the wisdom of the WEB rather than their own limited research staff or the lobiests only.

    Obviously the representatives who do not honor such a commitment will have that on their record when they ask for money or my vote.

    At least link to the source material

    I agree with the general feeling that the best way to get people to read the NewsPaper material is to provide them with links to the source material. When a paper writes "A report says ..." they should follow the statement with a "WEBrite" symbol (w), that shows there is a link on the WEB copy of the article to the main source.

    In addition, I'd like

    1) well designed threaded comment area that would allow valued comments and

    2) a BLOG headline list that would allow any blOG entry that talked about the article to be added, by the author, and sorted by popularity,

    so that we could go the the WEB copy of the article, follow the source links and benefit from the WEB wisdom.
