*Why do Bay Area TV/Radio broadcasters need to tell us "we need the rain" about 6000 times every day? As if we already didn't know. Yeah, it's been awhile since Mother Nature has delivered her dew on our lawns and pavement. We get it but we've also been down this road before. All we need is an Alaskan cold front with three straight days of moisture and snow in Tahoe and we'll be OK. Get the hell over it and refrain from the inevitable drought stories. Besides, if it gets real bad we live next to an ocean, remember?
*I wasn't ripping the NBC Bay Area 'Investigative Unit'--I was just mentioning the fact that for a specialized news division, they weren't delivering the goods given their enormous budget and nonstop ad blitz highlighting their illustrious reporting.
*Damon Bruce/KNBR watch: the firestorm has abated but both the show and Bruce himself sounds a little tainted. Bruce was to have emceed the Guardsman luncheon in anticipation of the Big Game but that was shelved. Wonder why.
*George Watson is alive and kicking. The former KTVU anchor has battled an ongoing problem with the bottle and we wish him all the best.
*The Radnich-Larry Krueger sports show on KRON was to have debuted last Thursday. Technical glitches aced that out. Look for the show to launch sometime this week.
