Have you heard the one about selling freezers to Eskimos?

I was feeling sorry for the huge number of people in southern West Virginia who are without power after the snow storm, some of them for several days.  Then I read this – name and place removed – from a WV MetroNews report:

“Our freezer and our refrigerator, we’re losing everything we’ve got. Nothing you can do about it.”

Have we become so dependent on technology and detached from nature that it no longer occurs to us that you don’t need electricity to keep food frozen if it is below freezing outside? Apparently the reporter and editor didn’t get it, either.

Then there is the off-duty police officer who drew his gun in a snowball fight.
