The residents of the Texas Panhandle (unlike people in other parts of Texas) understand how difficult it can being in a blizzard can be. We experience them intermittently ourselves. So I empathize with the residents of the nation's East Coast, who are experiencing a particularly bad blizzard. I hope all of you East Coast residents can stay safe, and are inconvenienced as little as possible. You are in my thoughts.
Doesn't it seem strange though (and very convenient) that when cable news networks cover an event like this (and like the shootings in Charleston, Paris, and San Bernardino), no newsworthy event ever happens in the rest of the world? How does this happen? Do the cable news networks send out a "bat signal" to the rest of the world, asking them to cease all activities that could be deemed newsworthy?
Of course, I am joking. But it does seem to me that the cable networks could do a better job of covering these events without ignoring the rest of the world's news. Am I being unreasonable? I'd love to know what you readers think.
