Ah, yes, it's the weekend. The week's end. The time between Friday and Mundane.
Where we cut loose, Footloose. Where we go out looking for a good time and wind up
hunched over somebody's toilet. It's what we live for.

Here in Chicago, we're smack dab in the middle of the heartland. It's predicted
to be "record cold", which I always thought was a reference to that Ruben Studdard guy's album from American Idol, but I guess really means colder than any day previous to today at least within this month or anyone's memory. Which apparently isn't very good, since EVERY freaking year when it gets this cold all the local TV news stations send reporters outdoors in their North Face parkas to interview pedestrians and remind us all to check on old people.

Look, Winter is cold. We know that, especially here in the Midwest. Enough already.
Oh, and it's harder to drive your car in icy, snowy, or rainy conditions. How about reporting on some actual NEWS for once?

And Network wanks wonder why the hell no one under the age of 40 watches television news anymore...
