get your info fast and good

If working as a journalist regularly for the past 6 months has taught me one thing it's: always call. Before you spend forever trying to find very specific information online - call the rep's. They're always glad to help and get their spin out and you get your info. What I learned today is, that this also works very fine if you're writing a thesis instead of an article. In this case I was trying to find out some jurisdictional stuff about gay marriages (which are supposedly in planning here in Austria) and ended up getting way more information than I thought I would. now let's just hope, they actually send me the email they promised me.
