A running rant about bad television, crappy products, horrible service, mindless politics, corporate and government ineptitude, moronic media, marketing overload, public idiocy, stupid entertainment, etc. Here's what's annoying me today:

More Breaking News

The bulletin, apparently official: A manhole cover has lifted in Watertown tonight.



This is an update to my Breaking News post of last week.

Double Breaking News tonight on Channel 7. First a car crash on the south shore. But the second one was a real breaker. Big news... full screen graphic...alert music...cut to the out of breath reporter. We've just learned there has been a manhole fire in Watertown tonight. Two manhole covers have "lifted," (guess it wasn't quite an explosion) 200 people are without power. I repeat, two manhole covers have lifted, 200 people are without power.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.
