@christoperj:

Now we expand the propaganda and fear mongering phase of the conversation. . . #passtheban #dentonban. . . Won't that be fun? (sigh)

@christoperj:

Ok, 8 hours later -- we at least have an election. . . #passtheban #dentonban

@christoperj:

Ok so the Mayor just spent 15 minutes talking about how he'll have a vote when there's a vote - but there wont be a vote. WTF #passtheban

@christoperj:

Wow, so after 7+ hours and a clear majority of speakers in favor of a ban, Denton City Council can't even muster a second to the motion. . .#passtheban

@christoperj:

And here we go. . .#passtheban

@christoperj:

Ok, seriously people -- after 115 speakers, is there anything else that really needs to (or can) be said? Time to vote. . .

@christoperj:

Seeing #OrangeShirtGuy walk out of the council meeting, half of Denton just did a collective "whaaattt???". . .

@christoperj:

#OrangeShirtGuy just walked out, so its time to vote. . .

@christoperj:

Still trying to figure out why do so many opponents of the fracking ban seem to believe that all the natural gas in the US comes out of Denton, Texas. . .

@christoperj:

83 speakers & nearly 6rs later -- still havent seen an actual Denton resident who is (1) against the fracking ban and (2) has no financial interest in taking their position. . .

@christoperj:

5 1/2 hours later. . . still the best thing on TV tonight. . .

@christoperj:

4 hours and 19 minutes, still going, and still the best thing on TV right now. . .

@christoperj:

30 speakers in, and the ones FOR a fracking ban on new wells all actually live in Denton. The ones that who want to continue AS IS all seem to be from out of town. . . Very interesting. . .

@christoperj:

After watching 2+ hours of @cityofdentontx council meeting, I dont think I've ever been prouder to say I live in Denton. . . Good times. . .

@christoperj:

Watching the show unfold via the @DentonRC twitter feed. . . Good times

@christoperj:

Ahh the joy of going to Walmart for a $3 part, only to wait in line for 10 minutes to pay for it. . .

All while listening to the cashier gripe about her coworkers to the other customers in front of me. . .

Then having the "Customer Service Manager" walk up when I get to the front, thank me for waiting longer while she exchanges money out of the register. . .

And then having that same "Customer Service Manager" tell me that "Sir, there are a lot of other check out lines to choose from" when I make a passing comment about how long of a wait it has been. . .

Good times. . .
