Open Memo Sandwiched Between Unrelated Bullet Lists

I have a new annoying portmanteau to add to my ever-growing list:
  • octomom
And that's all I'm going to say about that elastic-wombed nightmare.

Open memo to our new mayor Lioneld Jordan:

I have a problema and an idea. Have you ever tried to find information on our city's website? It's horrendous!! You can't find anything easily and it's clunky, weird, and off-putting. It's impossible to find what you need quickly which, in my case, is usually the agenda for the city council meeting or possibly some random document a regular ol' citizen like me might need (i.e. animal license form). Please do something about this...and soon! The information does seem to be stored or organized in a way that makes sense. I will try to find examples of municipal websites that are well done (in my feeble opinion).
Thank you,

Any other Fayettevillians agree?

In my rare free time I like to make my eyes, brain, and imagination work together.

Current reading:
  • Watching What We Eat: The Evolution of Television Cooking Shows. I'm pretty psyched about this one, even though I'm a new convert to cooking shows. I get to be an early reviewer for this one, thanks to jmb!
  • What Do Women Want? Easy. Everything. And why not?
  • the Fayetteville Flyer and its offshoot, local540. I love my town and so do they! It was cool and flattering to get a mention from them, too. These guys have put together a very useful database for local businesses, as well. So many places don't have listed phone numbers or web sites so it's a godsend to have a one-stop shop to turn to.
  • Reading student evaluations of our activities. I just love it when they write stuff like "it should be more fun in future" and that's it. Ooookaaaay.

I, too, am on Watching What We Eat duty. Maybe we should compare notes?
