A once-proud USA falls farther behind our European allies

We here at Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters often discuss with you, the crap-reading public, the concept of news as a revenue-generating business. This creates both problems and solutions from time to time, as journalists run all over the place looking for something people are more likely to read or watch than whatever the competition offers.

Particularly susceptible to the trend are those in broadcast media, who are in a constant battle for ever-increasing flash, glitter, and glitz.

Where does this trend lead? I’m glad you asked. Elise Hu and Matt Stiles, both very ironically with the non-profit news organization Texas Tribune, were recently on their honeymoon in Greece (congratulations, you two crazy kids!), and shot this video of the weather report of the nightly news program there.

The video originally appeared on Elise’s personal blog, Hey Elise.

    I’ll bet there isn’t a man in Greece who can tell you anything about the weather.

    The weather on Mount Olympus and Mount Pyrqos — Greece’s two tallest peaks — looked wonderful.
