    I'm so fatigued by under-educated journalists referring to the tornado damage in Moore as a 'war zone". This is, of course, from people that have never been to a war zone...whatever that is. To be clear, unless you discharge a nuclear weapon, there are no bombs that create this level of devastation. Perhaps one day, war journalists will say, "This looks like Moore, OK." And they'll be exaggerating.

    My heart goes out to those affected by the storms, in Oklahoma and in Texas recently. Please try to stay safe, and know that thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I don't like most things journalists say. They gear their dialog to the twelve year old mind.

    All flood/fire/storm damage is like a "war zone", all rifles are "assault weapons" and all large yellow machines are "bulldozers". Idiots, the lot of them.
