If the city won't do it, Jeff Erf will

Jeff Erf, Fayetteville’s Internet Yoda, has created a blog to display the tentative agenda for the next Fayetteville City Council next meeting:


According to Erf, those who visit the site can also post their own comments under any of the agenda items. IN an email he sent out, Erf wrote, “ The purpose of this feature is to encourage communication between city council and city residents. If there is interest in the site, I will add new agendas as they are released.”


I answered a knock at the door a few days ago, only to see a young man carrying a large over-the-shoulder bag, a box held out in front of him. Turns out it was a new Chinese meal that was in stores, and he had been hired to walk through neighborhoods, passing out free samples.

Yeah, right, I thought. Here’s a chance to see if the Internet is good for more than just posting comments under the Fayetteville City Council agenda. I typed in the name of the product and found many (!) Entries extolling its virtues - all except for one cynical entry.

“General Mills is undeterred by the toll taken of American dogs and cats by poisoned Chinese Pet Food. One of General Mills food brands . . .”


But when I clicked on the site?

Access Denied

You may not access this site at this time.

Interesting, isn’t it?
