Silver Lining to the Fianacial Crisis?

People are emailing their representatives. We are a representative democracy. They don't know what to do if you don't tell them.

From CNN.com:
The servers hosting the Web sites of the House of Representatives and its members have been overwhelmed with millions of e-mails in the past few days, forcing administrators to implement the "digital version of a traffic cop" to handle the overload -- for the first time ever.

"This is unprecedented," said Jeff Ventura, communications director for the House's chief administrator.

The tidal waves of e-mails and page views began over the weekend after negotiators announced Sunday that a deal had been reached on legislation to enact a $700 billion bailout of the country's financial system.
