Mike Lee is a domestic terrorist in the sense that he is more of a physical threat to you and your loved ones than any miscreant. In denying funding to science by disrupting and decreasing government spending — for instance, to neuroscience researchers — he insures that terrible diseases such as ALS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and MS among them, will take longer to decipher and cure.

When one or more of these diseases hits your family like it has mine, and it will, write him a letter. Please.
