Letter to the president

Bryan writes to President Bush:
Over the last 24 hours, I've been hearing an endless news loop about how I, a liberal, need to make more of an effort to understand "the heartland." Well, since two of the three branches of government and 51% of Americans are Republican, I think that, actually, you need to make an effort to understand us. The heartland needs to try to understand the brainland. ... I believe that the rest of us in New England – the ambitious strugglers who work in office buildings and research labs – are as much an integral part of America as the soccer moms or Nascar dads. Our views on taxes and foreign policy and social issues are not borne out of some kind of malevolent secularism. They are how we see the world. You want my support? Show me that you are willing to consider my viewpoint and take my interests into consideration.
