Do you recall the name of this 'previous President'? Probably you meant Bill Clinton.

You have got to be kidding. Georgie Bush ( both of them) were way worse.

Oh BOO HOO HOO. This is the apt RIGHT above us that caught fire. They IMMEDIATELY put her inRead Moreanother apt. She only got HERSELF out...didn't warn neighbors AT ALL...didn't pull the fire alarm or try to help anyone. 2 kids from Kroger across the street saw the flames and ran over, banged on every door getting people out and set off the fire alarm. There's 2 sides to EVERY story. She put us ALL in DANGER. Everyone's FURIOUS. She didn't even TRY to use her fire extinguisher. My husband went up there and emptied our extinguisher to calm it down until the fire dept. got here. EXTREMELY TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE. Our only way out is the balcony and the front door and that's EXACTLY where the fire was. They didn't loose "all their possessions"...give us ALL a break. GET YOUR STORIES STRAIGHT

Sadly, I don't see the apathy changing. I have to work Monday nights and can't be at councilRead Moremeetin gs in person. I have a friend that attends every meeting and takes me through the business of the meetings the next day so I can stay informed. From what I've been told, even with everything that has been going on with our City and City Council, very few people go to attend the city council meetings unless they want something, (e.g. they are fighting development in their immediate area). He tells me they will show up then in droves, pack the council chambers, use hours of meeting time in opposition then pick up their coats and bags and leave the moment the time for their issue has run out. They don't bother to stay and listen to anything else on the agenda, including serious issues that have been the topic of headlines for months and have an impact on the entire city. Unless it's of direct and immediate personal benefit, most people don't appear to care much. Some say it's human nature, others say it's an example of the selfish and self-centered cultural epidemic. I don't know. Either way, I don't see it changing. We need to demand video streaming of council working sessions and council meetings. There are citizens out there that do care but just can't be at the meetings due to work, children, etc. If it was streamed and could be replayed, it would be a positive. Everyone would have the ability to stay informed and involved if they chose to.
