Watching the recall workers

January 20, 2012 - Marguerite Lanthier
Year’s ago specialty television stations were all the rage. Watching a log burn on the fire was a popular one around Christmas time or for would be lotharios hoping to set the perfect romantic mood. Now you don’t have to watch specialty channels anymore on cable. There are specialty webcasts. Turn on your computer and you can find streaming video to fit any mode, any hobby, any sport or something just wacky. Want to watch cats. You can find them everywhere. But it’s okay. Cats are funny. Someone had a streaming video of paint drying on his walls. It has since been discontinued but it’s promised it will be reposted when the house is painted again. There is a link to watch grass grow, which is claimed to offer more excitement. Of course in Wisconsin, residents are glued to the new stream site of the Wisconsin recall webcam available for viewing at The stream consists of a camera in a room with about a dozen workers at tables and desks looking and scanning in 300,000 pages of recall petitions at a secret location. An accompanying Twitter site (at) recallcam. allows viewers to offer comments on the people, which adds intrigue and hilarity. You can read comments on workers with nicknames like “Sideburns,” “White Glasses” and “Flirty von Flirtenheimer.” But if this doesn’t excite you, you can’t go wrong with cats.
