Mr. President, in twelve hours I will destroy Washington DC with this giant "laser."

This is entirely speculation, but an interesting thought experiment:
- HOW LONG BEFORE THEY DROP 'CBS EVENING NEWS'? [NY Post]
The fact of the matter is that sometime in the next few years, one of the three network newscasts will have outlived its usefulness. The time will come when one of the three newscasts will be discontinued. That time isn't now, but if it were, "The CBS Evening News" would be the most likely candidate.
I haven't watched any evening news program regularly for years. I guess that makes me part of the "problem"...
That reminds me...
For impenetrable inside references, rampant automythology, undefined jargon and quoting of "occasional" words for "no" apparent reason, I can always rely on Apple Recon.
But if you want more needless quoting than even Robert Morgan "provides", here's a place to "go":

At the local "Dairy-Freez" (an "ice cream" store) in the "city" of Marquette, Michigan, a real "gem" has emerged:
"Store" closed due to "Illness."
Does that mean it "wasn't" really a store, but an "undercover" crack trade, and it's "just" a really long trip to "Hawaii?"
A billboard for a bank in Idaho Falls reads:
We believe that "PEOPLE" should answer our phones
"PEOPLE" are about the same things as "robots with Gap clothing," right?
Sorry, sorry, very late posting today...and if I don't stop now, I'll be late for dinner. More tomorrow, I promise!
