Yawning is one thing, try actually falling asleep!Dan said:Got scolded today.
Yesterday night, during the Planning Commission meeting, I was caught on camera yawning. Supposedly all eight people watching the meeting on the City public access channel saw me.
I have the same problem, especially when a commissioner says someting that goes way beyond the issue at hand or the scope of their duities. Luckily we don't have cameras and I sit behind the commission.KMateja said:I have to really watch my eye rolling at public meetings. Some evenings after a particularly bad proposal or yahoo citizen outcry about something or other, i feel like i've almost shaken something loose with all my eye rolling.
I'm with Reztger - there is no more pure and highly distilled political speech than the personal double eagle to an elected official. If they charge him please let me know and I'll send some money to his defense fund.TexasPlanner said:
I have been "televised" for over 10 years at 2 jurisdictions. So far, I have not had to explain what I do to my exterminator, hairdresser, neighbors, or any of the other parents and/or children at my son's school. They have all seen it! Of course, it is always "We were just flipping thru the channels and little Britney/Austin said, there's Conner's mom!". I still wonder who watches the meetings, do they have a real life?JNL said:What's with broadcasting city council meetings? Do many people actually watch them? Are they recorded rather than just transcribed so that all hand gestures and physical assaults are preserved in full colour in case of later prosecution?
SW MI Planner said:Our council meetings are taped and televised. We went to get new bathroom fixtures and the girl there said "I saw you on tv the other day". I purposely never watch them.
