Tuesday night is one of my two "TV" nights. I watch House and Bones.
About 15 minutes ago, there was a small quake. It was a rolling one, and lasted a good amount of time for a little quake. It wasn't even enough to
rattle my dishes, so it was really not worth mentioning.
But what does Fox do? Tells us about the earthquake 15 minutes into a new episode of Bones. It couldn't wait for the commercial break? Oh, yes, I
remember -- the sponsors would never stand for it, so screw the audience instead.
5.6 magnitude isn't enough justification to interrupt a show. It could wait until the 10:00 newscast. What the heck do I care that someone in
Livermore felt it?
There's a big surprise, it was centered just east of Milpitas and Livermore is between Milpitas and Oakland. If I felt it, I'd be surprised if they
DIDN'T feel it in Livermore.
Do me a favor, local Fox news channel, don't interrupt my show for anything under a magnitude 6.5.
