If Adrianne Curry thinks hurricane victims should pay for their own rescues, perhaps news stations can also help foot the bill, since they’re the ones sending the message that it’s totally okay for civilians to stand in gale-force winds as long as they believe they have a good reason for being there. Like, ya know, ratings.
Gawker has more clips of hurricane newscasters like this moron here.
Again, thoughts and prayers go out to those of you affected by the hurricanes this season. A reader from Houston sent me pics today of her neighborhood after she returned from evacuation. So a shout-out to Kelly C., and thank you for reminding me what an impact these events are having on our country.
