*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

The LIVE link to a reporter

I love it, how when there's a LIVE feed on a newscast, the reporter gives his/her report and then says the obligatory "...back to you..." at the end.

But then, after the reporter is supposedly "done" with the story, the Anchor in the studio has ONE MORE question for the reporter-- just to make it all thorough and professional-looking. Like the anchor has this spontaneous inspiration to ask this really informative question...

But, if the anchor has that question (as they almost ALWAYS DO), doesn't that infer that the reporter didn't do a thorough job?
