Citizen Joe

Could be lack of sleep, could be lack of news, could be the distraction of all the deadlines that seem to fall in January, but I was having a hard time finding something to write about today until I ran across Citizen Joe. This is another resource for talking points and factoids that you can use when you are getting ready to talk to your representatives about your issues. Articles on health care, prescription drugs, and mental health include information that can be turned into persuasive arguments in favor of increased support for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment and better public policies. The article on public health looks like it will address the issues of obesity, smoking, and AIDS, but, right now, only provides specific information on obesity.

I'd say that Citizen Joe is worth a bookmark and the occasional "dink-around" to see what they've updated or added to the site.
