the winter storm of 2009 is here, at least according to our newscasters. i’m always one part amused and one part concerned about the ridiculousness of sending reporters out to do live reports about the weather, in which they tell everyone to stay inside unless they absolutely have to go somewhere. it’s almost as silly as having a reporter do a live shot in the dark outside of a courthouse for the eleven o’clock news to talk about a case that took place when it was actually daylight, hours earlier. really? does this contribute anything to our understanding of the news? am i just being overly critical?
anyhoo, i hope you’re all staying warm and cozy today!
