Jerry, in regard to Alaska, I had a call from my daughter up near Anchorage two days ago.
After you started this thread, I contacted my Illinois senators, and my daughter contacted her Alaska senators.
Two days ago she received a phone call from Senator Lisa Murkowski's office. They said that thanks in part to her letter, Senator Murkowski would be co-sponsoring legislation to ensure that the PSA test remain an approved procedure.
Pretty cool, huh?
On the other hand, I got a rather generic email back from Sen. Mark Kirk, but nary a word from Sen. Dick Durbin. (not surprised about that).
My daughter was understandably pretty excited.
