Is there anybody who lives in the Chicago area that does not know about winter, already? How does that happen, exactly?
Just never you mind all that. It’s Weather Awareness Week! And so our intrepid county bureaucratic government is warning us to wear mittens and scarves because it’s gonna be cold for a couple of months. Of course, it does that every year, since like … ever.
But we’re too thick-headed to have figured all that out. So to protect us, some bureaucrat in Washington or Springfield put up some cash to promote a Weather Awareness Week, so they could issue a Captain Obvious press release. Which our local paper then printed, word for word, as a news story.
What would we ever do without them?
