I find this appalling and pathetic, especially with Rep. [Lincoln] Davis. I know it's the holiday season, but communicating via the Web is becoming more and more critical. For example, providing constituents with a phone number to learn if their community is impacted would be useful. Providing informative links would also be helpful.Maybe they're out buying party hats and noise makers for New Years.
Unfortunately, all this does is reinforce Congress' image of being slow, inept and ineffective. In many situations, that's good for America. But not this one.
UPDATE: A corporate media type gets around to contacting Senator Corker's office, which gets around to issuing the usual "the Senator is aware" of the problem, which of course states the obvious. Like we didn't know that the new GOP golden boy and union-shop slayer was not aware of something that happens regarding energy in his back yard. Like we didn't know that ABC's Jake Tapper ended his Sunday morning segment with Corker by sending out thoughts and prayers to besieged Kingstonians. Enlighten us, Senator Corker. Tell us something we don't know about your plans for responding to this disaster and preventing it from ever happening again.
