A total of 1235 attendees made use of the bank of computer terminals set up at the March Meeting in Denver to contact their representatives in Congress. With the 2008 Fiscal Year budget cycle just beginning, it was an opportune moment for physicists to weigh in on the importance of funding for the physical sciences. The FY07 budget had just been passed, four and a half months late, a few weeks before.
