Now, Here’s Tom With the Weather…

December 2, 2007 at 9:07 am (The Easy Chair)

Even Ted Baxter Jr is getting bored with the endless weather reports.

I’m watching the local news, and they’ve finally gotten off the Snow Watch. (They literally showed *one* snowflake on top of Council Crest.) Must be tedious, waiting for that.

Today it’s the big Wind Watch.There *could* be strong winds coming in the next few hours. (Guess I’ll be taking my free umbrella today).Even the Nice Girl reporter is glazing over at the endless weather report. The weather girl? She’s holding up well. She’s been getting lots of screen time. And now they’ve brought in a Senior Weather Person, who looks like a 19-year-old in a necktie. He’s predicting how many people will lose power today. Hope he has better luck with that than the snow.

Don’t they realize that all these threats of bad weather scare people indoors, thus driving down the crime rate? Nobody is going outside, doing bad things and giving their mobile newsrooms somewhere to go. Meth Watch? Let’s do some meth and go crime-fightin’!

Why just meth? Can’t we have a Heroin Moment at the end of the newscast, to put us to sleep? The Nightly Nod, anyone?

And, of course, the Stupid Criminal segment. What can we call that?

The Pot-Liquor Report, of course.

I’m cranky. I’m going back to bed. Wake me if it snows…
