After rage, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor seeks a different kind of town hall on health care



A week after pushing, shoving and name calling erupted at her Tampa town hall on health care, Congresswoman Kathy Castor is trying it again. This time, though, she is ensured a more controlled setting.

She will use telephone conferencing, a platform Democrats are increasingly using nationwide to avoid the confrontational gatherings that are all over the news.

Castor, who has held "tele-town halls" before, will be available at 6:30 p.m. Call 1-877-229-8493 or 1-877- 269-7289. PIN: 13964. (Below: What's the deal with this photo? Click here to find out.)
