It's getting a little tiring hearing the news refer to every freaking story as'breaking news'. The bombing was breaking news, showing coverage for a planned vigil is not. This is just sensationalism. Breaking news.....it was sunny and 23°C, with a light breeze.

Ditto that.

Keep in mind that in Sacramento a grass fire is about as common as the police stopping someone for speeding.

It's one of the most mundane of events we have around here and they report it breathlessly as if this grass fire...THIS ONE!!!...is a threat to human existence on a scale unimagined by mere mortals!

The agency where I work has long had a problem with overstating 'emergencies' and the result is that everything from the bathroom being out of paper towels to a printer needing paper is labeled URGENT or WORK STOPPAGE as if nothing can function until this crisis is averted.

And then when we have an actual crisis...like the 2014 South Napa Earthquake, nobody reacts to the alerts because who cares? It's just another fucking alert, right?

Ditto the 'Breaking News' and its close cousin the STORMWATCH!!!!

Because THIS is what passes for Armageddon-like weather in California:
