Some yammer-brained teacher serves pot in a dish at a private pot-luck (Poisoned her fellow teachers – many sickened, one hospitalized!), and the ninnies are wringing their hands about the possible “effects” on students returning to school this morning.
There was a big house fire. Oh, my gawd, a fire. A big fire! News Two is on the scene! A fire! Oh, my gawd!
Some whackjob kid made some bombs. He was arrested for possessing a “weapon of mass destruction.” We’re interviewing his former friends here in California from two years ago! They don’t know a damned thing. But we’re interviewing!
His current roommate says he set off three little “bombs” – which sound like cherry bombs or somesuch – and that he was stupid, but not crazy or violent. He just liked to make things that went boom. As I did, when I was 12 or 13. I didn’t know it, but I guess back then I had weapons of mass destruction myself.
Also: Traffic backups in the Bay Area! Oh, my gawd, traffic backups!”
Is our news media this trivial, or is it us?
Oh, and endless drought, world coming to end!
UPDATE: They’re wondering why she served pot at a pot-luck You know, it could be just that simple.
