As I write these words, we have just over 3,000 signatures on the petition to be sent to the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) about the proposal to reduce the number of hours the various NARA offices are open. That's not enough! We need more signatures.
If you are concerned about the hours of availability that you will enjoy in the future, please add your "electronic signature" to the petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/FGS2006
