any reason as to why we shouldn't contact our congressmember with the same requests (aka why only senators and why not also pramilla, adam, denny, etc?)
Jan 31 captain underpants commented on Republican Dave Reichert and Democrat Pramila Jayapal Cosponsor Legislation to Protect Dreamers.
i just called reicherts office to thank him for this move and offer additional encouragement for him to exhibit resistance to trump policies. in general i'm not a fan of the guy (nor am i a constituent of his, nor pramillas) but this is a commendable move no regardless of how results shake out.

Jan 15 captain underpants commented on Seattle Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal Won't Be Attending the Inauguration.
i've admired jayapal's public service these past few years but have never had a chance to vote for her (lived in the 43rd when she won the 37th seat, now live in the 9th rather than the 7th...). throughout the past election, i prefered her over walkinshaw, but would not have been crushed if the results worked out the other way. watching her today and these past two weeks, however, has been galvanizing in a way i was not anticipating. she knocked it out of the park at the #OurFirstStand rally today, and seems to strike an incredible balance between the fire of 2015-2016 bernie and the universal appeal of 04/08/12/16 barack. she's going to be thrilling to watch these next few years. i look forward to supporting her policy efforts as best i can and selfishly am excited to see how her energy affects my congress member, adam smith.

this team is better than the 2012 team (slightly). that team finished 11-5, we almost definitely will finish with a better record than that. i think there's a slight argument this team is better than the 2015 team too. granted they were much hotter at this point in the season than we are now, but the 2015 would have lost that atlanta game, and at least one of the arizona/buffalo/new england games as well. all in all, as you point out, there's both still time for us to get right and crazy things happen in the NFL. a 2 seed could go a long way for us.
