Oh, local news. I lova ya! I find it interesting just how banal this seems to get when you see all those stains, squiggles, pieces of food, and grain patterns lined up over and over again. I understand that people want to touch the spiritual, to be connected with something bigger than themselves, but even if you are deeply religious is it too much to admit that this all might be coincidence? I did enjoy the skepticism from some of the newscasters. That was refreshing!
