Whatever you do, DON'T PANIC!!

A great big Random Pixels shout out to all of Miami's news anchors: Eliott, Shannon, Craig, Belkys, Calvin and Laurie.

I'm one viewer who appreciates the professional, calm, restrained, and measured way you guys are covering Tropical Storm Isaac as it relentlessly tracks its way towards South Florida and its helpless residents.

I'm awestruck at how all of you are able to keep your emotions in check as you report with painstaking accuracy, the facts surrounding the first potentially deadly weather event of the 2012 hurricane season. And all while resisting the temptation to hype the storm into something bigger.

Hats off to all of you for a job well done. You guys make me proud to be a Miamian!

Oh, I almost forgot.

There is one tiny thing that's bothering me.

Do you suppose that some of you could get word to the art department and ask them to tone down the on-screen graphics just a tad? Thanks in advance.

  1. This is even better than the possibly apocryphal toe tags story of years past.

    Please keep updating us as the storm moves closer.

  2. That's why I don't watch channel 7. The graphics department is overly enthusiastic about bending the truth. It's so distracting from the weather girl's push-up bra.
