The dog days of hurricane season
I believe in God and country. I also believe in baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Toyota automobiles.
And I damn well believe in a television anchorwoman who brings her dog to work during a hurricane.
In this picture from WWL television in New Orleans, Eyewitness News legend Angela Hill is shown behind the scenes of the station's ongoing coverage of Hurricane Isaac with her personal assistant, Diesel the Dog. Channel 4's news director may have other thoughts, but I think it's pretty much mandatory that Diesel be given some on-air role in keeping folks up to date on the storm.
TV news never lets a pretty face go to waste and, with one like Diesel's, it would be a doggone crime if it started now.
