U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd, who heads the Senate Banking Committee and is a key player in the $700 billion bailout talks in Washington, won't make it to Thursday's "Eggs & Issues" in Bristol.
So those of you who were hoping to tell Dodd to put Main Street -- or North Main Street -- ahead of Wall Street are going to have to wait until it's probably too late.
But, as city Republican Party Chairman T.J. Barnes said last night, those of you who have something to say should let your elected representatives know what you want from this bailout deal.
All of Connecticut's delegation in Washington except for Democratic U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney are backing the bailout so far, including Dodd and U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, as well as U.S. Rep. John Larson, the East Hartford Democrat whose 1st District includes Bristol.
"Ultimately, we're paying for it," Barnes pointed out, and this is the time to make your voices heard.
