Letter: Storm Warning

To the Editor:

The nanny state has reached a new level of excess. On Monday afternoon, VPR music was interrupted by tones appropriate for an imminent meteorite strike, followed by “news” that the weather service had announced a winter storm warning for Wednesday. What we were supposed to do, get under the bed for two days? I peeled back a PBR instead, found a station playing Black Sabbath greatest hits and wondered how mankind had ever made it out of the jungle without public radio to change its diaper.
