The team that pores through the thousands of e-mails, faxes, and letters that are sent to President Obama every day consists of 50 staff members, 25 interns, and a rotation of 1,500 volunteers. Nobody is looking over the five to fifteen personal replies that Obama sends out each week, although perhaps they should, considering this line from a recent letter to a Michigan lady: "I know times are tough, but knowing there are folks out there like you and your husband give [sic] me confidence that things will keep getting better!"
