Protesters on Wall Street may draw the cameras, but angry Californians are also letting politicians know how they feel about the $700 billion bailout program, reports the Los Angeles Times: "A spokesman for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said her five offices had doubled staffing to deal with the constantly ringing phones. Through late Thursday, Feinstein's offices had received a total of 39,180 e-mails, calls and letters on the bailout, with the overwhelming majority of constituents against it. The spokesman said the volume was as great as during the immigration debate and at key points during the war in Iraq." Plus: Protest planned for tomorrow at Hollywood and Vine. [LA Times]
