|Philadelphia Inquirer | 07/19/2006 | Tom Ferrick Jr. | Read it here! It's hot outside!:
"I don't get this weather. It's crazy.
Have you noticed it keeps getting hotter and hotter?
It seems to happen this way every year, especially in July and August.
I can't understand it.
Here at the paper, we are trying to understand it, too.
We sent out a team of reporters yesterday, who fanned across the region.
When they came back, they reported: It is hot everywhere! Very hot!
The city editor said: You mean everywhere?!
They said: Yes, everywhere!
He said: This is front-page news!
And so it was done.
Counting overtime, the stations probably spent $250,000 yesterday to tell you that it is summer and that it is hot."
