Pursuant to the last entry, our local TV station has set up an open forum, roughly titled, "HEY! Traffic sucked! Whose fault is it?"

In 24 pages of responses, we've managed to refight the entire Civil War, be lectured about the tsunami, blame everyone from God to the DOT, get angry that anyone would MENTION God or the DOT, finger point, name call, type in angry all caps, and generally devolve into a flamewar that would have made the old Usenet forums blush.

If you've got a few spare minutes, skim that sucker. Good times, people. Good times.

Related note: Worst intro to a news report EVER, "Well, our fountain (outside the TV station--background for a live shot) is flowing the way traffic didn't yesterday evening!"

Dear God. Metaphor and Similie have given up and gone home for the week.

Dear God. How charming all of those people are. Let's see, they've blamed Yankees, Southerners, Soccermoms, SUV-drivers, pedestrians, DOT, weathermen, the mayor, Santa Claus, and Archduke Francis Ferdinand. I'm monitoring it to see when the Japanese that bombed Pearl Harbor or Hitler make an appearance on the blame list.

These people are obviously clueless. Don't they know it was all Bush's fault?
