What a day. I started my morning watching this video my friend Molly Matlock sent me, my blood boiled, and I sent an email to the representatives in the NC House. I got one reply, and my blood boiled a little more. Let me share the one response I got:

Drill Baby Drill bill
PLEASE watch this video, it's important!!!!!!!
The NC House has suddenly restored my faith in humanity and our democratic process (some of it anyhow). They've killed the "Drill, Baby, Drill" bill.
Thank you you so much for the letters you wrote, the emails you sent, & the phone calls you made. Someone listened.
If you haven't seen our latest clip from our "Dispersed" footage , visit http://vimeo.com/28973949. As Jane Preyer for the Environmental Defense Fund notes, "this issue is likely to come up again;" however, we have bought time to learn more and educate others.
The email goes on, but folks in North Carolina, if you like your coast and you vacation there, you better wake up and write those emails to your representatives, we DO NOT want drilling on our coast or any other coast for that matter. There has got to be better alternatives to our dependence on oil. We are a smart nation, let's figure it out!!!!!!
