Shiny, Happy People Holding Hands...

Have you "friended" any news outlets on Facebook?  If you haven't please do!  And be sure at least one of them is local.   One of my greatest pleasures these days is reading the comments - and comments on comments - posted by the jury of my peers currently populating my Facebook space.

So one of our local news stations (best known for their sensational journalism, hyperbole, and alliteration) posts this pretty dry, yet informative piece about Hurricane Earl:

Ladies and gentlemen, I present The People of Facebook:

You've got your Generic Likers

The Slightly Pissed Off

The I Told You So's

The Truly Pissed Off

The Attackers

The Defenders

The Rebutters

The Defenders - This time it's personal

The Random Hate Speakers

The Clairvoyant Grammarians

The English Teachers (okay, these are my people)

Think I'll stay on the right side of the law.  The jury pool's pretty shallow...

Also, you would not be "too" worried. Argh.

Hysterical. People get very serious about very silly things on the internet.

Awesome. I fall in the English teacher category as well. I'm starting to love news comments as much as I love the Real Housewives.

News comments blow me away. I finally stopped reading the ones on the major sights. Surprised you didn't have a screen grab of someone bringing that missed forecast back to politics and who's to blame. Sigh.

Even I've had enough.

And in defense, I was a meteorology major for two years. That shiznit is hard!

I love you're mind ;-)
