DuPage obviously not center of universe

Success - Article sent! close

With sympathy to anyone really hurt by the recent "disasters" along the East Coast and the TV show The Big Bang Theory, science has awarded the Center of the Universe to New York City and Washington DC. A minor earthquake hits in Virginia and the cable blabbers have hissy fits all day long.

A Category 1 hurricane rolls along the Outer Banks (where they are used to them), but it may bother Wall Street and D.C. so we are subjected to days of blather about winds and rain. When it hits, weather idiots are dispatched to stand in the rain to find "rising" water.

A few weeks back, a storm hit DuPage County with higher winds and rain. Power outages lasted for days. The state declared disaster areas for Carol Stream and Glendale Heights, but that's no media or political center. I guess it all depends how good your press agent is.
