How many of you went on Facebook tonight (Tuesday) to watch and listen to the Franklin Common Council meeting?

Oh, I know.  You’re like…what?

Give up my night for that?

When I could be shampooing my hair?

Vacuuming the house?

Loading the dishwasher?

Bringing the garbage bins back into garage.

Reading the obits in the paper.

Scrubbing down the backyard patio.

OK!

Got your point.

You have a life.

Who wants to hear Kristen Wilhelm drone on and on and on and on, even from a distance.

But if you did check in, as I foolishly did ever so briefly, you would have quickly turned away. I did as Mike Zimmerman was giving an update on the Ballpark Commons. Important stuff. I tuned Mike off anyway.

Here’s why.

If you’re going to live stream a meeting, two components are essential.

1) The video.

2) The audio.

If you fail on one of those and only deliver on one, that’s 50%. Is that not a failing grade? Was when I went to school.

The live stream of the meeting sounded like this.

Click below and watch and listen to the first moments of the video from a Tonight Show program in 1978. Of course you can keep watching the rest of the video because Don Rickles is simply hilarious, but at least you’ll get a feel of the incredibly inferior audio emanating from Franklin City Hall tonight (Do they not want us to hear what’s going on?).

Franklin’s audio problems have been around since Reagan was president. Will they do anything about it? Your obscene tax dollars at work…NOT!

Here you go.

Finally, Mike Z., I’m sure you were brilliant as always. I hope you had some choice words for that group of Greendale women that always shows up to complain your noise is ruining their nightly Ovaltine routine.

Franklin, get the damn sound system fixed already, wouldja?
