Fidel Does Us A Solid

In the battle of the hurricane blogs, I have to give the edge to Bob King. The Palm Beach Post storm-meister informs us in his most recent post that the National Hurricane Center gave big props to Fidel:

"SPECIAL THANKS TO THE GOVERNMENT OF CUBA FOR PERMITTING THE RECON AIRCRAFT FLY RIGHT UP TO THEIR COASTLINE TO GATHER THIS CRITICAL WEATHER DATA."

My only problem with King, who has always been a fine reporter in my book, is that, in the mugshot on the blog header, he looks like he's taking a dump. A pretty severe dump at that.

The Sun-Sentinel's hurricane blog, a group effort, has more postings and isn't terrible -- there just isn't much interesting on it.

One of the Sentinel bloggers is reporters Josh Frank, who penned the average weather story last week. In it I wrote that I'd never heard of a reporter pitching a weather story. It's usually some old codger of an editor with nothing better to do that comes up with those ideas. But Frank may be an exception -- he's a meteorologist himself, as he explained in his introductory post.
