BP oil spill, town hall meeting in St. Petersburg, what a waste of time and money and energy.

Will we ever enter the 21 Century?

I was at a town hall meeting last night in downtown St. Petersburg held by the secretary of the Navy about the Oil spill and recovery plan for the Gulf of Mexico.  An hour into the meeting it all of a sudden hit me, what am I doing here? What a waste of time and money and energy. The same day I had attended a sales webinar in the morning and an active rain webinar in the afternoon from the comfort of my home in Shorts and T shirt, with a coffee in my hand and my cat on my lap. Both meeting took an hour each and I went back to my work immediately, in fact I even answered a few e mails and searched for properties to show while being at the meeting. Now, 4.30 pm I have to get dressed, put make up on and drive downtown, find a parking space, pay for it and walk up to the town hall to find a seat and so did about 300 other people. This “one hour” meeting took me over 3 hours. This is the 21st Century why on earth do we still need actual town hall meetings, what is wrong with a town hall webinar? It is much cheaper, more efficient, less time consuming, saving physical energy and gas for all the cars to drive around town, give way more people the chance to attend etc…………………..

What do you think?

Is there really a reason to still do actual Town hall meetings?
