As an alumnus of CBS News, I still enjoy a frisson of familial pride when CBS aces a story, or otherwise covers itself with journalistic glory. Such was not the case last week, however, when CBS began airing a promo claiming to have "invented original reporting on television," a claim so overweeningly bogus that the frisson it produced was one of squirming embarrassment.
Can a white woman beat out a black man?
A few weeks ago I watched a half-hour of a televised debate among GOP candidates who had gathered in New Hampshire for the occasion. As I was switching channels, I thought Michele Bachmann had won hands down.
Whether counting miles or reporting emergencies, the new markings are a plus-
By Jonathan Mayo.
Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation recently worked along the Rail Trail, marking every 10th of a mile with signage indicating both distance and location. These are ideal for accurately reporting emergencies, mile counting or fun with the kids as they travel along the trail.
Rain should fall off and on all day today, and it should stay murky for tomorrow as well.
We have a big area of low pressure that will slide along south of us, and we'll take a good soaking from it. I''m thinking West Cape will get it worse than East Cape. I'm thinking an inch of rain for Falmouth, half that for Chatham.

The Politics Of Fear & Anger in America
"I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore."
- Anchorman Howard Beale, portrayed by Peter Finch in Network, 1976
Before anyone gets all mad at me and starts blaming this column for the rain, note that I have very little input on how day-to-day weather goes. I just let you know what's coming.
That said, we are headed for an extended period of heavy rain and strong winds. A series of storms will pass over us.
Harwich Wins Cape Cod Baseball League Championship!
Harwich 5, Falmouth 4
John Wooten bashed a home run in the 6th to push Harwich past Falmouth in the Cape Cod Baseball league finals.
Harwich now holds a 1-0 series lead. The best of 3 goes to Falmouth tonight for an 8 PM struggle, and will return to Harwich this Sunday, if necessary.
I should add that the weather is beautiful on Cape Cod. Any rain we get Sunday will be well after the Cape league season is over.
Here's the rest of the schedule:
