Letter-writing Campaigns Not Always in Vain

In response to several local PBS spots highlighting precipitous drops in state funding for PBS (and NPR, I later found out), I responded with a brief e-letter to my New York state Senator, Craig Johnson (seventh district). I received a helpful and positive written response several weeks later (April 14 of 2009) indicating that the legislature had changed the funding cuts to 17% instead of the original 50% reduction proposed by the Governor.
