I'm really getting sick of our local - and by local I do mean Spokane which is about an hour and a half away - news station. They happen to be the CBS providers for the area. I was really excited about Criminal Minds tonight, got my night shift guy to come in early for me (I was covering a shift) and got home in plenty of time.
Then the stupid news station breaks in with a weather alert that's nowhere near us. This is the second week in a row that they've done this to me during Criminal Minds so I have no clue what's going on in the show. I swear if they do it again next week they're going to get a very nasty email from me.

Now to the point of the subject line. They always do their news teasers during the shows. Tonight they were talking about a police station that is having budget problems so they're firing their dog. I've heard of working for chicken feed before, but dog food?? And I have no clue if they mean the handler too or not. But seriously, firing a DOG??? *points at icon*

*Hugs* Living in Tornado Alley, I totally understand. There've been times when we've been watching something and then been interupted to be told about Tornado touching down somewhere that was nowhere near us and my parents and I'll be like WTF? That's the problem with news stations having a big broadcast area, if something's going down in their viewing area, they have to broadcast it even if the rest of the area couldn't care less. The thing with the dogs is BS though, how're you gonna win the War on Drugs without dogs?

*shudder* Been there, done that. Not the Alley, mind, but close enough for a couple of years. I had no clue what was going on with the drills though because we moved there when I was in second grade and, for all the craziness here, we don't get really extreme dangerous weather.

I should've watched the newscast to find out what was going on, but it was after NY and I've given up on that until I can fast-forward all the D/L crap that's on there. *rolls eyes* But I feel bad for the dog and the handler too.

Who knows, if its one of the smaller farm towns then it could be a lot, but I don't think they'd have a dog in the first place. Mostly west side cities have them.

I saw that it was gonna be the birth eppy and chose not to watch it. But I did know that about Mac, he told us about it back when Aiden was still around.
