A silly view of the evening news.

At 11:00 p.m. each evening I watch the news, mainly for the weather report.

Now my Dad watched the evening news too, but not for the weather. He always said, "I watch the evening new to find out if the world ended. If it did then I don't have to set the alarm for work in the morning."

Anyway, the news came on and they said that they were on (Storm Watch!); as if I need them to watch a storm for me. All I have to do is look out the stupid window. Dah!

After the Storm Watch dialog they said that they had (Breaking News!), as if I didn't already know that.

They break the news into segments, like with the weather. First they tell you a little about tomorrow's weather and then they tell you that they will tell you the weather particulars later. That is Breaking News, Right?!? Now I know that they are going to do that, so why bother telling me that they have Breaking News?

Suddenly they go on some kind of an (Alert!) and all regularly scheduled news comes to a stop.

Now I am watching some moron driving a supposed stolen vehicle down a freeway and through three counties. Well don't you know that all the stations with 11 o'clock news have their "Sky-Cams" glued to this idiot! For the next 30 minutes all I see is a vehicle with (Like) 14 cop cars following it. And it is going in a big three county circle!!!

Shit!!! --- I missed the weather report, and I still don't know if the world has ended. ... I guess I'd better set the alarm just to be on the safe side(?).
