Don't blame the journalists, they get paid a pittance and are on relentless production deadlines so they produce makeshift stuff. The quality control editing that used to be there got cut to save costs.

Stripped of their want ads income, newspapers are generally unprofitable, so they have become vanity properties for rich owners such as Bezos or Carlos Slim, guys who do not like to spend too much.

The story itself is not fake. The attention grabbing tweet is

Larry is forecast to go extratropical between 45.1 and 52 degrees north--pretty decently high latitude.

the record is Hurricane Faith, 1966, which at 61.1 degrees north was the northernmost Atlantic TC history.

this Weather Fact was brought to you by Juliancolton's Baked Corn 'N' Weenies Cereal.  when you think breakfast, think corn and weenies.  back to you, LibertyBell.

It would be interesting to learn about a typhoon that hit Hokkaido and produced a blizzard lol.

I suppose the same has happened on the Atlantic side in Maine or farther north.

Good evening Will. I never knew Julian was an entrepreneur. Judging by the product name I’m not sure if you ingest it or calmly wait until it does something to you. As always ….

Evening Liberty. That information may be printed on the back of Julians cereal box. As always …..

According to Lee Goldberg's map, this hurricane Larry will make landfall as a 75 mph hurricane near the eastern edge of Labrador, he said it will then race up to Greenland and be a HUGE snowstorm/blizzard up there!

If there is ever a post pandemic forum get together, several of us can do a NYMetro skit, written by Will. After the performance we all might have to find a new forum and possibly a bail bondsman. As always …

You know...you're more than welcome to get together with friends and family tonight or even tomorrow if you'd like. You don't have to wait until Fauci or someone gives you the green light.

On a discussion forum? Um...ok, I guess. I just haven't seen anyone express that they're waiting on "post pandemic" to do what they want since about 15+ months ago. 

You do you.  Let others be.  There's plenty of stuff I'm not doing until this shit is over.

Or we can let others do whatever they want, and leave the politics to a political forum….

You would imagine this would include commenting on what they want, you know? No harm in someone reading something they might not entirely agree with or even disagree with entirely. That's the point of a discussion. 

On a forum discussing the politics of a pandemic, sure. Not about an innocuous comment about a gtg on a weather forum. End of discussion.
