(Stephanie Kienzle) I want to personally thank Sergeant Nelson Reyes of the North Miami Beach Police Department for giving me the material to write this blog. If it weren’t for him, frankly, I doubt I could have summoned up the energy or the interest to report to you the details of the budget workshop I just attended. I showed up, I listened, I wandered off in my mind to chase unicorns, and to keep myself from falling asleep I took cursory notes of the meeting, hoping I would get excited about something. Anything.
For the first forty five minutes or so, a trail of people got up to speak. Most of them, residents and cops alike, said pretty much the same thing they all said at any one or more of the previous budget workshops. Yada, yada, yada. I stopped taking notes after about seven speakers, wishing I was home watching any of the handful of cop shows I’ve recorded over the last week, because the “real life” cop show I was watching was boooooooooring. This is why I never watch “reality” shows, American Idol included. “Dancing with the Stars” holds no interest for me except to make me wish I had visions of Dwight Yoakam dancing in my head. So, yeah, you get the picture. Budget workshops, and reality TV, are really not my thing.
