David Carroll, an iconic TV journalist in my hometown of Chattanooga (OK, I'm from nearby Cleveland, but not everyone knows Cleveland) posted an excellent blog today.
Carroll's topic is leaving children in hot cars.
Here is the lede from his post: "I like to think I'm an even-tempered guy. My family would tell you I don't yell much. I've worked in the chaotic world of broadcasting for decades, and I think I've been in only two shouting matches. But lately, I want to say something pretty loud. On the Internet, one can only do that in all caps. So here goes, cover your ears: "PEOPLE OF AMERICA! HAVE WE REALLY SUNK THIS LOW? DO WE REALLY NEED SIGNS TELLING US NOT TO LEAVE OUR CHILDREN IN A HOT CAR? WHEN DID WE BECOME THIS STUPID?"
I could not have said it any better myself.
Carroll posted a picture from a store reminding parents not to leave their children in the car.
Repeating Carroll's question, when did we become this stupid?
