You are morons. All of you. Or, as Pogo said, "We have met the enemy and he is us." All because of this; the elephant seal standoff, better known as what local TV News does in this area to fill time when there's no other news to report.
Sadly, we've been down this road before with another critter calamity, you think we'd have learned.
Let me stop you before you accuse me of being insensitive toward animals. Stop. Quit the whining and insincere self-pity. Please. The elephant seal, just like Humphrey doesn't give a crap about you. Never has, never will. Which is precisely why I'm aghast at all the coverage. Not surprised, mind you, because in the so-called land of sophistication we have a bunch of idiots.
You all. Morons!
The seal story was quite legit. For about five minutes. Then it quickly entered into the theatre of absurd with reporters, some good-intentioned folks, went berserk and began acting like a pack of idiots! In the process, they once again gave significant ammo to why everyone hates the media.
Pathetic, idiotic, morons --go back to your smart phones and call Ronnnnnnnnnnnnnn Owens and talk like a pirate.
