A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Another reminder why I don't watch much local TV news: Granted, I work for the newspaper and all too often all the TV "journalists" do is swipe stories from the morning paper (they learned this in college) and read them on air.

Because there was a pitching change in the Padres game, I flipped up a channel to see what was on, catching just a few minutes of the 10 p.m. newscast of the local Fox affiliate -- and I'm sorry I did. I listened to a grand total of three crime "briefs" and whoever wrote the script should be fired. In one, a police officer was hit by a woman who was apparently driving 75 mph down a city street. But what you don't know is if the woman even stopped after hitting the officer. No details of the woman (age, city of residence, name) were given, and the brief ended with a statement to the effect that it was unclear if the woman would face charges. I'm guessing she stopped, but it wasn't clear.

Two others also left the viewer with more questions than answers. Well, I guess I'll find out what happened in tomorrow's paper.
