Sequester them all

To the Editor:

We, the people of the United States, in order to preserve, protect and defend this great nation for ourselves and our posterity do hereby decree that U.S. House and U.S. Senate members, totally void of any obsequious print or photo media fawning, be summarily sequestered without monetary or professional compensation in a Congressional conclave until such time as a permanently mandated, balanced federal budget be secured and ratified.

Engaged, law-abiding Americans, with endless gratitude to those who have gone before, giving that last full measure of devotion, will patiently await the first sign of white smoke.

William G. Parrot
