Menlo Park council members think their meetings are running too long, and many in the public would agree. But the council has decided that a solution is to use a buzzer that will sound whenever speakers from the public exceed their three-minute limit. Who thinks that some council members themselves need the buzzer -- or a gong -- even more than the public? Are any council members in particular abusing their right to filibuster? Please post your comments below.
Does MP need a buzzer -- or gong -- to limit the length of remarks by council members?
