Okay, I'm griping about newscasters again, and I know it isn't fair. They're somewhat extemporaneous and we have our leisure to analyze their words. But didn't anybody take a class in public speaking?

The one that set me off last was "Minimally, he will receive a sentence of no less than ten years at the very least."

And maximally, I will be throwing up no more than ten times at the very most.

What's really disturbing is, they read that crap most of the time. Few things have disillusioned me more than standing behind the set of the CBS Evening News when it was on location for a summit meeting. Dan Rather has Leslie Stahl, Bob Schieffer, and some other big name on to ask questions about what to expect, in what appeared to viewers to be a Q & A session. They all read every word off the TelePrompter.
