Local News Weather and Sports Weekend

Post by deejay » Sun Feb 05, 2017 7:44 pm

Ok , not sure where this goes on forum, but needs to be said. After listening to one of the local tv channels last night talk about ISU suffering a "brain fart", I had to shut it off. In the last few days, I hear about "freaking wind", the "A rabs", spoken with a long A, the word "posthumously" butchered. Just where are they getting these people from. Sure not Journalists!

Welcome to the old guy fuddy-duddy club, Dee jay. You have so much to look forward to. Maybe holding your wife's purse while she shops in the mall. A good soft yogurt. Velcro shoes and sans-a-belt trousers. Coupons. Welcome, brother. Let's meet for a coffee sometime and talk things over. You know, about the way it used to be. Oh, forgot about angry letters to the editor. Word to the wise, always count ten before mailing!

Not sure where to go with this one. One observation: the good ones don't say too long..on to bigger markets

So because I expect a little more preparation from these "professionals, I must be old and crabby. Just how important was it to the family of the Navy Seal from Chillicothe to not only get his name incorrectly, but couldn't even pronounce "posthumously". Must not be important to some of you.
