Do you like free weather forecasts? Vote against Rick Santorum - 8:40am EDT
The New York Times is running an editorial about the recent proposal by Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) to basically outlaw the National Weather Service from issuing any forecasts. However, NWS would have to still maintain full staff because they would still be responsible for issuing warnings since the private companies don't want the liability for that. Of course, this has absolutely NOTHING to do with the face that right before the introduction of the bill, AccuWeather, one of the largest private weather companies in the country which happens to be based in his home state of Pennsylvania, made a donation to his re-election campaign. If anyone does not understand how idiotic this is, leave a comment and I will post more to explain.
