What do you mean? Shoreline Blvd. is in town.

I do agree that posting it 52 minutes before the meeting was a waste of time.

What I mean is: The location of the meeting WAS NOT in town. It was near the outskirts of town.

YES, Shoreline Blvd. is in the town of Mtn View .... But remember Shoreline Blvd. is a very long road that even changes names.

You sound bored. Why do you choose to attack my opinion? Get a life!

LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY: I am a native here.

"TOWN HALL MEETING" makes it sound like it is "DOWNTOWN".

Do you know where downtown is? .....

Doesn't sound like it?

Do you know where the Computer Museum is?......

I take it both of you missed the meeting while you found the time to bicker back and forth. And thanks to the Voice for no advanced notice.

We posted it as soon as we heard about it, so I'm afraid you'll have to thank the organizers for the lack of advanced notice.

Change your identity. If you're an observer, you would have noticed that I missed the meeting in my 1st post.

I observed your post was at 2:11 am. Get some sleep.
