Rainy day

It was still dry when we went to bed, but by now it's pouring and a gale is howling. TVNZ have been told not to refer to -our- prime minister. Apparently -our- implies a cheerleader mentality which has no place in responsible, unbiased television reporting. What do they know about that anyway? Other words not to use are tragedy, chaos and carnage. No kiwi or kid, unless the story is about a bird or a goat. That could give Weet-bix something to think about.
