I remember when TV commercials lasted just long enough to run to the kitchen to grab a quick snack and run back, not drive to the local book store and read War and Peace and the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. We had 3 TV channels, rabbit ears, and no remote and it didn’t cost a dime to watch it. Now, it costs nearly $75 a month, we have 250 channels, a remote with just as many buttons, and only about 3 channels worth watching…between commercials, which last as long as the program itself. Back then, the news lasted 30 minutes once a day and you knew everything you needed to know about what was important. If you wanted tabloid news, you had to buy a celebrity rag at the grocery store. The so-called hard news wasn’t so infused with tabloid news that you couldn’t tell the difference and it wasn’t blasted out on 15 channels, 24 hours a day. The weather channel didn’t exist, of course. If you wanted to know the weather forecast, you had to watch the 6:00 news or listen for it on the radio or read the paper. It was short, dry, matter-of fact and certainly not the way it is now, over dramatized like a Broadway production of West Side Story, with more animation and glitzy graphics than Star Wars.

We know that sex sells, but weather?
