Salt, you raise an excellent point often we only call/e-mail/write to complain, it is wise to laud sometime, it is just rare we get the chance to extend praise. Here is my sample:
(Remember your House member and two Senators are BOTH your “congressmen” as spelled out in Article 1 of the Constitution, but this template is for a House member)
Dear Congressman _____
Thank you for taking the time from your busy day of fundraising and dialing for dollars on the phone to have a low-level, unpaid college intern read my rant before it goes to the circular file. While you are raising the average $2.5 million it takes to hold your seat every two years and listening to lobbyists who suck the oxygen and opportunity for true communication away from your constituents, it is nice to know you care. Do not work too hard those three days a week you are in the Capital naming post offices, passing useless resolutions, and attending hours of sponsored events imbibing free food and booze. I hope you enjoy your $174,000 base salary that we pay for, maybe some day you can come down from the ivory tower and understand the true plight of your fellow Americans. Thank you for your time.

Reason: No edit. This one is sarcasm for just that special day.
