The Local News...Funny Stuff
So I was watching the local news last night. I never watch the news, and now I remember why. It's not that I don't want to know what's going on in the world. I would love to stay informed. But nothing happens around here, and a 30 minute newscast could be reduced to 10 minutes if they just left out all the "fluff" pieces. Also, the Boise area doesn't attract top-of-the-line newscasters. We were watching our local Fox news station last night, which is the WORST! Fox news is an hour, and remember I already told you that 10 minutes would be sufficient??? They usually have trouble finding stuff to fill the time. There are usually a few seconds at the end of the news where the newscasters just sit around chatting - like I want to hear THAT! Anyway, last night they had a piece on a town that's for sale in Britain. I'm not sure exactly why this is news, but I guess that's beside the point. Honestly I wasn't really paying that much attention, until they ended the film of the town with a local dog lifting his leg to pee on a bush. Yes, you heard that right... the local news thought they needed to include a clip of a dog urinating! Just in case it was important to you to know that the town up for sale included poorly mannered dogs just like any other town. Now THAT'S news!
