Things In The News...

When you are the weather guy, you can sometimes just sit in the Storm Center and shake your head as the news is being read. Just in the past 48 hours, some crazy news has surfaced.

First... poor Lindsay Lohan and the rest of her girl squad. She has everything going for her and flushes it down the toilet for some cocaine and excessive booze. Why do these girls not have people to drive them around? If I were that rich (and did not get car sick), I would get a driver to drive me everywhere I went! Shooooot.... I'd ride in a helicopter if I were that rich! I won't even get started on the Britney Spears and fried chicken story! Justin Timberlake has to be glad that he dropped that weirdo. A few years back, she was a pretty girl and now she is pegging out on the skankometer.

Second... Drunk astronauts? Are you kidding me? We have people flying space shuttles intoxicated! How much does a shuttle cost anyways? I would not let anyone drive my old pickup truck intoxicated, let alone a space shuttle that was paid for by taxpayers. I love space exploration, but we spend way too much money on NASA. All of us should be extremely upset when they screw up.

Third... Sagging pants being illegal. Do we really need a law for this? I absolutely despise seeing pants sagging down, BUT I'm not sure we need a law. My wife made a good point last night. If we ban sagging pants, then we also need to ban some of the shorts that girls (mainly teenagers) are wearing around town. How do these fathers allow their girls out of the house like that? I know my boys will not be sagging their pants!

There are few more stories that have bugged me this week, but I'll stop here. Speaking of bugs, are we covering the "mosquito" story too much or do you find interesting? Just wondering...

I always thought it would be hilarious if a dog gets after those saggin britches - they'd try to run and fall flat on their face - LOL!!! Maybe that is mean, but I think it would help them realize how important it is to keep those pants UP!

I absolutely hate manuplation by power, but com`n on guys.......its been said forever that you are judged and perform according to how you present your self.Therefore,if that is true, then baggy pants sure dont say much for folks that want to capture dreams, or for that matter, what do they say about a persons image of self esteem?

I agree, get over the mosquito stories. What made me want to get over it, was last Thursday night when Marsha Mays was in Newport reporting how wonderful the mosquito control program was and then in the Friday Newport Daily Independent they published a poll about how effective the program was 0% of those polled said the program was effective. Then in yesterday's paper, the mayor was defending the program. So let us get over mosquitos except for KAIT8 (Marsha Mays) to report how incorrect her first report about Newport was!!!!

But, otherwise keep up the good work!!!

I don’t like to see someone’s hind quarter’s hanging out of their pants anymore than anyone else but, we need to know where to draw the line s far as telling people what they can and cant where on their bodies. When we are out and about and I see something that is offending then I just turn my head and look the other way. People in the United States of America have the right to wear what they want. Me personally, I wouldn’t get caught dead letting my butt hang out of my pants.

Do I find it offensive? YES

Do I think there should be an ordinance in place making it a crime to wear certain clothing? NO

Last time I checked we still lived in a Democratic form of government, and if we start telling people what to wear and how to act, we have drifted to more of a totalitarianism form of government.
I guess we will just sit back and let our rights be taken away 1 by 1 until we all wear the same clothing, eat the same meals, drive the same cars and go to bed at 9pm every night.

The story last night that had me freaking out was the one about people putting train airhorns on their cars. I don't care what anybody says, those thing are LOUD!!!! And it seems to me if they blow it at somebody who's already distracted they'll cause a wreck for sure!
