I'm an investigative journalist!

So, about halfway through writing my City Council story I realized that my notes were woefully inadequate. After bombarding my roommate with questions, google-ing for any potential information, sending half a dozen e-mails, and repeatedly pressing the refresh button on the Meeting Minutes page hoping desperately that they would magically appear(the ultimate gesture of futility), I realized that the vague nature of my notes was not my fault.

They simply hadn't talked about it. Key information that I needed from these people was not discussed. Oh noes!

For one, not only am I unfamiliar with the area in question, but there was a distinct lack of a timetable for action. So, at 12:30 a.m., my roommate and I hopped in the car and we drove out to Edina to familiarize ourselves and hopefully get the answers to our questions.

This will be me tomorrow.
"Why yes, I can tell you the information is factually accurate. I was there verifying just last night, actually."

Still, the topic is woefully dull and I'm not very confident, but the bugger is written and like, whatever. I'm gettin' a drink and going to bed.

...Thursdays are hard.

ETA: Also, because I haven't done this in a while. Here's my babb_chronicles cut.
