I couldn't not have a comic today, being a generally obsessively punctual person, but felt the REAL LIFE CAREER-THREATENING NEWS was important enough to at least mention. Here are a few easy things you can do:

- Call your senators and representatives on the phone and urge them not to support the bills. See above links for phone numbers or†click here to get a quick list of representatives based on where you live.
