I've got blisters on my bandwidth

It's been quite an eventful 24-hour news cycle for unclebarky.com. Thursday brought a record 18,730 visitors to the site, most of them no doubt lured by stories on Wednesday's twin terminations of two prominent TV Rebeccas -- reporter Aguilar of Fox4 and meteorologist Miller of NBC5.

A torrent of comments, unlike anything experienced before by this site, had reached a combined total of 315 by 1:45 p.m. Friday.

So it's time to towel off a bit while also alerting you to a review of Fox's new Canterbury's Law series, starring Julianna Margulies. It premieres Monday.

We'll leave you with a recent Baldo comic that seems to sum up the feelings of many about the state of local TV news. And look for a followup column Monday on the typically cavalier and close-mouthed treatment of prominent television news employees who suddenly are deemed expendable.
