did you really need to investigate that?

dear Fox 2 News:

everyone in saint louis knows what city museum is. it's a giant jungle gym, with large objects to climb on and slide down.

did you really need to send out your investigative reporting team to find out that people sometimes broke their legs and ankles at city museum?

did you really need to send out your investigative reporting team to find out that there were several lawsuits pending against city museum?

unless your investigative reporter was named "captain obvious," i think your little investigation was overkill.

yes, i know local news is currently in the business of two things: stating the obvious and trying to scare the crap out of all the stupid people who may be watching. i know there's no substance in local news. but, still...can you try a little harder, or at least not expend resources in your pursuit of the obvious? that time and money would better have been spent on something else, and you could have spent the time telling viewers that 2+2=4.

that's a little less obvious than the fact that people get hurt at city museum.

helpfully,
the persecuted crack smoker
