Notes on Watching MS-NBC

If the election coverage were to be played as a Christopher Guest mockumentary, Chris Matthews would be MS-NBC's own Fred Willard.

I needed a Geiger counter for a bit of investigative journalism, and I couldn't find one to borrow or rent. So now I own one.

I did my investigation and the substance I was testing is not radioactive. This is mixed news because (a) it is good that this thing in our homes is not radioactive but (b) bad because there goes my story.

And now I've got a Geiger counter and nothing to do with it.
