On weather.com this morning, there was a weather advisory, rather (to my mind) gratuitously informing all the readers that ice was forming on local ponds and that people and pets should stay off because it was thin. Really? I'm shocked!! Shocked, I say!! My main gripe with this is that it appears to be written by and for the US Weather service. We are paying for the obvious. Really? I'm shocked!! Shocked, I say!! Any more examples of the obvious that we can send Ron Paul?
