By Mike Archer. I sometimes despair about the fact that the newsreaders who inform most of the population about the world around them every day seem to have the collective IQ of dust particle.
I won’t bore you with a long treatise on the subject I will merely provide two examples from the past week.
1) A News 1130 post that was re-broadcast on Facebook informed me early in the week that if I had sex four times a week I stood a great chance of having lots of money.
I commented on the post, “I think you’ve got that backwards.”
2) CBC News told me on my way home from work Friday that I stood a greater chance of drowning in hot weather than in cold weather because more people drown when it’s hot than when it’s cold.
The other problem could be the ice.
