Welcome to the land of internet hoaxes.
There is no such bill to charge email to save the
postal service, the reference to a 3/6/99
Washingtonian editorial is pure fiction, and neither
the congressman named, nor the attorney, nor the
alleged law firm, even exist in our realm.
See Washingtonian web site
As an aside, almost any e-mail message that pushes a
button or tugs a heart string and says in effect,
"quick, right now, open oyur address book and email
this to everyone you know", is a prime candidate to
fix up with the delete key for a hot date.

internet hoaxes in the least.
