with all this talk of war and exploding things all over the news i must admit that i look forward to all the stations doing their hard hitting coverage of "storm watch two.thousand.three". california media gets so alarmist over a couple inches of water that i can't comfortably drink a beverage and watch a newscast.
"we've got seven different reporters covering the rain all over the southland, first let's go to the guy who's either getting rained on the worst or not rained on at all."
conversely, they also seem to send the guy with the hairpiece out to the spot with the worst wind. like some newsroom asshat want to point out that bob's got a toupee.
