I'll be there. I know the good Congressman will vote for this garbage no matter what. He is a liberal Dem after all. I will still be there to tell him how I feel about it.

My husband and I showed up at the August 10, 2009 town hall meeting at Perimeter College prior to 6 PM. The lines were already beyond long, and grew even longer once we secured our polite place in the line. After an 1.5 hour wait, we were turned away as the gym was completely filled. The lines snaked around and were poorly drawn, and the folks at the end of the line managed to move ahead and secure a better position than the courteous folks who arrived earlier. The public would have been better served if there had been less police protection and more town hall coordinators to manage the people flow/paths. Perhaps any future town hall meeting coordinators should anticipate a large turnout and plan accordingly. That would ease the disappointment to those that are unable to be accommodated.
