The Austin American Statesman gave five paragraphs of coverage to the Doggett shoutdown. Here are the last three:
Witnesses said that when Doggett was asked whether he would support the plan even if he found that his constituents opposed it, Doggett said he would. People then began chanting "just say no" and overwhelmed the congressman as he moved through the crowd and into the parking lot.
"The folks there thought their voices weren't being heard," said Kathy Acosta, a Bastrop resident who attended the meeting at Randalls and another one later that day in her hometown. "They were angry, but they were respectful. There wasn't any violence."
Calls and e-mails to Doggett's office were not returned Sunday.
It's not a good sign when the local congressman (or his flak) won't return a phone call from the local paper.
Fear, anger, confusion and frustration are a'buildin' up out there, ladies & gentlemen.
