So I Wrote My Weatherman
(WMURTV News 9, Manchester, NH)
Dear Kevin Skarupa,
Thank you so much for your comment, "I'm a man of science. Come on!" this morning after the anchors picked up Anderson Cooper's "Bigfoot on Mars" story. When so much serious attention is being paid to alleged psychics, ghosts, and other hallucinatory phenomena from the world of woo, it's nice to know that there are some rational thinkers out there that aren't afraid to ridicule the ridiculous. How things like this get reported as straight news defies my understanding. The only newsworthy item here was a complete lapse in good judgment by Anderson Cooper, and that's not really news either. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
This is the landscape of Mars. Examine it closely.
Do you see any of these on the horizon?
Or any of these lying around on the ground?
Yeah, sure. That's a running Bigfoot, and my mother's the mermaid on the tuna fish can!
