Were Election Projections Announced Too Early During Election Coverage? [OPINION]

The election is now behind us, and after getting a chance to cover the election results from the Pettis County Courthouse, I had the chance to finally watch the national coverage. I have to say, this will not be a rant on the results and whether I agreed with them or not because I think you have received enough of that in the last 24 hours.  However, some of you wanted to talk about the coverage, especially the national items.

One of the big buzz words yesterday on television and radio stations was the word "projections."  I find it interesting that yesterday, as you flipped through the channels every TV station was trying to get ahead and project winners based on exit polls.  While exit polls are a valuable tool to try and guess on how one will win or lose a state, I have to wonder whether this is good practice.

Are Wet News Anchors Really Neccesary? [OPINION]

Is it just me, or is it a little silly to see a newsman knee deep in flood waters doing a news report on an approaching storm like Hurricane Sandy? Do they really think we don't know what a flooded street looks like?

Usually there is a line that even the lowest criminal will not cross.  That line is the one that takes advantage of a tragedy. In the police report for July 26, 2012, there was one of those stories that points out that we have someone in this area who has stooped that low.

A Dollar General For Your Thoughts

Let the griping begin. The Dollar General at 3rd and Osage is going away and is getting replaced by the one on North Ohio. When I was in the store earlier today I talked to a customer there, who could have voiced an opinion held by many people who are used to walking to the old store from the homes close to that store.

Let Them Eat Cake: Who’s Controlling the Gas Prices?

As someone who watches the price of gas closely for some sign of reason for the raising or lowering of the price, I have to say that I am confused most of the time.Most of us would believe it should have nothing to do with some Sheikh in a small Arab country catching a cold, but the oil companies will use that excuse if there is no other.

A Poem For The Arrogant


There are double parkers

And loud talkers

Who get on my last nerve.

There are public spitters

and premature quitters

Not getting what they deserve.

There are cell phone users

and checkout abusers

Always in the way

But Can You Spell “Inadequate?”

As if my inadequacies weren’t apparent enough, now I learn that a six-year-old girl can out spell me, as well as an 11-year-old boy and a 14-year girl in Kansas City. The National Spelling Bee is hurtful to people like me who have to use spell check for any word with more than four letters.
