Terrible News

Dear Local News Channel,

It is extremely crass to go from a story about drought, refugees, and the worst humanitarian crisis facing the world right now to a story about how the weather here is going to be cooler than seasonal with a bit of rain (OMG! RAIN! On the Westcoast?!) by saying, "And now for some not so good news for those of us here on the island..."

SERIOUSLY?! Like the previous news was just GREAT news for us, right? WTF! And that our 'not so good news' is that we're going to get rain? One of the things they need most? C'mon! What's next? A follow up to famine with the "not so good news" that we're going to have so much food we have to throw it out?
