A Plague of Journalists would be even worse. A pox on the lot of them!

Did you see the anti-Trump banner that said "Feed him to the Corgis"?

Does everything have to have a "purpose"?

Can't horseflies just enjoy the odd meal of blood and get on with their lives?

But they do give work to journos, allowing them to write headlines such a ...

If I understand correctly, yes , it is Jam Lady's local weather station - it's the one on her roof. Can't get more local than that!
