It seems every mail delivery brings two or three pleading letters from people who are trying to save whales or cure cancer or protect our civil liberties. A few are scams, but most are very worthy.

Most of us pick the two or three that strike a special note somehow and ignore the rest. We Jersey queers have a special responsibility however.
