And Now, the Local News...

Open letter to the morning newscaster lady:

Dear Newscaster lady,

This morning on the 5:00 am local news, you reported that a man was rescued from our local marina by the Coast Guard, and you said that he was recuperating at a local hospital after being treated for hypothermia due to exposure. You said that the cause of the accident was unknown, and that he fell out of his dingy. Please note that when the word "dingy" is used in this context, it is pronounced "ding-ee", as in a small boat powered by oars; you do not pronounce it "din-gee" as in grimy or dirty as you did this morning. You sounded silly and even the a.m. DJ on the radio station I listen to on my way to work was making fun of you.

Ted Baxter would have been very proud of you.
