If you’re a reader of the opinion page, chances are you also read other papers like The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post or Los Angeles Times. Maybe even Mother Jones. But when I come home for the evening I want to watch some local news followed by some national news. It helps me cook dinner for my wife and me. Time to relax.
About two times a year one can’t do that in Washington. We are subjected to hours of endless weather drivel. Endless hours of the same weather stories on all three major local stations. And to make matters worse, they go beyond their half-hour news, adding hours and hours of weather drivel.
Enough already! You have a choice. If you subscribe to cable you can change the channel to BBC news or the PBS news hour. Anything is better than hours of weather drivel. Protest!
