Hype? Mostly yes. But not completely.

Hurricane Irene is gone now, and dozens of reporters and cameramen are sleeping safe in their beds, knowing they Saved Lives By Throwing Caution To The Winds And Reporting The Horrific Conditions The Little People In New York, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. Should Avoid!!!

Uh-huh. Right.

Toby Harndon, the US Editor for the Daily Telegraph, gives us the scoop…and some proof of things a “journalist” will brave, just to get you The Story (meaning they’ll do anything to get their face on the aptly-named boob tube).

This is not in any way meant to disparage the disaster happening in Vermont. I don’t watch television, but I do listen to the radio, and I’ve heard very little about the rivers that are raging torrents, destroying historical covered bridges and leaving real devastation in their wake. That coverage is heartwrenching, compared with the “not sideways rain” poor Anderson had to deal with.

Our prayers are with you, Vermont, along with all others affected by Irene.


Except the dweebs in the lamestream media, that is. They can kiss off.

For the man sound in body and serene of mind

there is no such thing as bad weather;

every day has its beauty,

and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.
