Nice job by Channel 12 could have been nicer

It’s a Sunday ritual: reading the big morning paper, and that includes those who work in TV newsrooms.

Someone at Channel 12 saw this article in Sunday’s paper about 6-year old Sam Last of West Bend. He has a brain tumor, but thanks to the folks at Make-A-Wish Foundation, he lived his dream of singing the national anthem before a Brewer game at Miller Park.

A Channel 12 photojournalist was assigned to record Sam singing, and a portion, a short clip was broadcast on Channel 12’s 5:30 Sunday afternoon newscast with the promo that the entire national anthem could be seen on the Sunday night 10:00 newscast.

True to their word, Channel 12 did show Sam Last on the 10:00 news, but not until 10:50.

Would it have hurt to show the entire video on the 5:30 news? How about showing it earlier than 10:50 when most kids (including Sam) were probably asleep.

Here’s Sam singing.

Culinary no-no's

Unquestionably, we all have our favorite foods. Collectively, as a nation, designating those favorites isn’t a tough assignment. You’ve got our pizza and tacos and hot dogs and burgers, right? surveyed readers on this very topic:

“Fast food -- a little bit is great and a lot is even better (at least before it sets in your stomach). One could consider eating our true national pastime, and if the feedback we received is any indication, then move over baseball, because we only have one true passion, and food is it.'s faithful readers were asked about their favorite fast food in terms of quality, price and speed of service.”

Uhh, wait a minute, Kev.
