Mail This: Stay Out of Our Games, Senators Joe Donnelly and Dan Coats

Dear Senators Coats and Donnelly, Among all of the other pieces of news dropping recently regarding the fair city of Washington, D.C., one that has recently re-reared its ugly head is the specter of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
