France Bad And Ail


As we say in fair and balanced Vermont, jeezum crow. Get a load of this unfair and unbalanced WaPo op-ed:

TO LISTEN TO THE FUSS Europeans are making about their weather, anyone would think that it was actually hot over there.
...
Okay, so maybe it's a bit warmer than usual. Temperatures across the continent have shot up into the 90s and once or twice have topped 100 degrees in London and Paris. But is this really hot -- hot enough to close businesses, hot enough to cancel trains (the tracks might buckle), hot enough to wax nostalgic for the summer rain to which some Europeans, notably residents of the British Isles, are more accustomed?

Last time we checked, the weather here in Washington was in the upper 80s, which is average to low for this time of year. Temperatures in Houston and Dallas in the past couple of days have topped 100, as they usually do in summer. Yet somehow, no one's talking about extraordinary measures being taken by Texans or Washingtonians.

Fair and balanced response: a) gotta love the compassion on display; b) Chicago had almost 800 people die in a 1995 heat wave; c) just as in fair and balanced Vermont, they don't have very hot weather over there, so most people don't have A/C; d) many people in the US are without A/C now, and complaining; e) DC shuts down when there's an inch of snow, but we here in fair and balanced Vermont somehow manage to go to school and work in snow storms.

Oh, and to the person who wrote that piece of tripe: go "fair and balance" yourself, asshat.
