Blueberries and Cherries

On my way out this evening I noticed a metric buttload of squad cars around the intersection of Green and Locust, all but one of them with lights flashing. Two hours later, some of them were still there (or had been replaced) and the lights were still going.

Whatever was up, I fully expect to read about it in the Daily Illini tomorrow, and will be disappointed if I can't. The DI is a morning paper, it should be scooping the News-Gazette on a lot more stuff than it does. The DI's craptacular local coverage makes it really hard to defend when people I know from other schools make fun of it.

Yeah, as a former DIer, I find one way to deal with the disappointment: I avoid reading it.

Most of the articles are softer than Charmin, and there's often some cringeworthy mistake that makes me stop reading.

Plus, I'm older, and I really don't care that some teen thinks local radio is terrible or that "there's nothing to do." Meh. If you don't like it, go to school someplace else.

(Local radio is scary, though. More often, I consider satellite radio.)
