I have no fear of hurricanes. This is because I live far away from the Gulf, and because, having grown up in a land of tornadoes, where you get maybe 30 minutes’ warning that a big storm is coming, having days of CNN standing on my lawn talking about the bad stuff to come seems like ample time to get the hell out of dodge to me. I love hurricane coverage on the cable news networks, where everyone’s trying to be Dan Rather circa Camile, out in the field getting blown around. Fantastic television.
It turns out, the only thing that can make the coverage better is… a bear?
That’s good TV.
