A Must-Use Site 

Thanks to Masson's Blog for pointing this one out (and for adding me to their Judge Bradford/Anti-Pagain Ruling blog roll): there's now a site that uses PERL scripts to automatically create blogs for each Congress critter, so you can easily follow what legislation your representative is proposing and how they're voting.

Called Plogress, you just go there, pick a state, then pick your rep. It couldn't be easier, but it shines a big old light on things that representatives hope would only happen in dark rooms -- or on C-SPAN, where they're too boring to tolerate.

For example, my Congressman is co-sponsor of this law, which sounds like a good one:

Co-Sponsor of H.R.1652: To establish certain duties for pharmacies when pharmacists employed by the pharmacies refuse to fill valid prescriptions for drugs or devices on the basis of personal beliefs, and for other purposes.
Anyway, if you want to keep your finger on the pulse of government (with the ability to keep your foot on its neck), go to Plogress. Today. Right now. Go, go on...
