Tarrot

The anchors on KYW 1060 seem to take turns, I think they switch every half-hour. On my way to work, and on my way home for lunch, it's this old dude whom I really like. He messes stuff up every so often, but he always laughs about it and says something like, "ha ha, [mispoken word]? THAT doesn't make any sense!" And I can tell he gets along with Fred Sherman, and any friend of Fred Sherman is a friend of mine.

The lady who's on my way back to work from lunch fucking sucks and I hate her. She messes up all the time too, except even MORE all the time, and for some reason, when she does it, I just think it's sloppy and unprofessional and she should get a new job.

But here's the kicker, folks. Yesterday or the day before, when the sniper left that Death Card at the scene? She called it a "tarrot" card. As in, rhymes with "carrot". She pronounced the T. Three times, she did it three times, she had no freaking idea. Man. Eff you, ignorant anchor lady. Stick to writing or something.

UPDATE: I think the guy is Don Lancer, I think that's why he knows Fred Sherman so well.

OH MAN! I so called that shit. The other day I was talking about how I almost wish I got my news from the tv or radio, rather than the it-ner-net, just so I could hear journalist after journalist say "tarrot card." O as in oh shit, I'm delighted to hear that someone actually did. And yeah, I'd be fucking outraged too. That lady's supposed to be a professional journalist? As in, a profession where you're supposed to be literate? Like, slipping up on air once in a while is bad enough, but that "tarrot" thing is actual, real-life ignorance at work right there. Man. I hope that lady fucking dies.

Also, "it-ner-net?" THAT doesn't make any sense! Hyuk!

Got a tarrot for my donkey
I'm confused. The web site said: "A Temple University professor and former criminal profiler thinks the sniper may be a washed-out police wanna-be. "

Mr. Sniper wanted to be a police individual? Or he was and he's washed-out? Or he's a washed-out wanna be? How exactly do you do that?
