Jeers: To KXAS/Channel 5 news. Watching all morning and still listening to a bunch of drivel about the lake house on fire. We know what happens — there are flames. Felt sorry for reporters Kristi and Eric killing time. Tell reporter Julie Fine that one doesn’t say “10:30 a.m. tomorrow morning.” A.M. means morning.

Jeers: To DFW Airport for charging a $20 fee over an expired credit card on my TollTag account, even though I responded immediately. The reply, “It used to be $30,” is not a consolation.
