Not on a shingle, as the old WW II vets would describe chipped beef on toast, but on my TV screen.

MY beautiful high definition screen is not only loaded with over sized logos and pop up ads for upcoming shows, but tonight, the cowering masses of Indiana, fearing a little ice and snow, are treated to a weather bug in the upper left hand corner AND scrolling school closings and delays transversing the bottom of the display. It even obstructs the station bug in the lower right corner and often the news crawler in the same location.

I don't know if I've sent of salvo of harrumphs toward this problem before. Don't matter. It's worth repeating.

Is the wimps of Indiana that I curse, or the station producer who has gone meshuga with the video toys at his disposal?

Shit On the Screen. No better way of putting it.
