Summer News Cycle
It's good the cable news channels have found another missing white woman on which they can focus their prime time programming. It's helped fill the gap while we wait for Paris Hilton to be released from jail. We wouldn't want them to resort to doing filler stories on foreign events, energy, the economy, or silly stuff like that.
Oddly, thus far one summer fixture seems to be missing--that menace to human civilization: sharks! I guess there haven't been any attacks?
If TV news wants to stay with the beach threats theme, it might consider stirring up public hysteria regarding killer sand.
