I have been thinking about my post last night, and I may have reacted a little harshly. I was completely shocked that this town is so small that at least a full minute of our televised news was dedicated to two children and their underwear. How sad that there was nothing more newsworthy to report!
But I have come to a realization. This small town does not have enough murder, rape, and pillaging to fill a half-hour newscast, so they had to resort to a silly little fluff piece to complete their time. That is a good thing after all. The sad thing, as it turns out, is all of the multi-millionaire CEOs, doctors and scientists doing life-saving research who didn't have the luxury of wedgie-proof underwear when they were eight.
