I am with the Governor on this one. I don't like using e-mail either, and in fact it's not that effective a way to communicate unless you are constantly checking it and sorting through the hundreds of junk emails. Then there is the security issue, as whatever you muse about is public in theory and routinely ends up as part of litigation and court cases.
Many times e-mails just don't get read, or at least read in a timely manner.
