Stupid severe weather warnings

James Lileks over at the Star Tribune writes about those annoying severe weather warnings during tv shows. I couldn’t agree more. Some of the persistant warning garbage they put up on the screen is akin to having your microwave continue to beep loudly even after you’ve removed the food from it. A small scrolling bit of text (and no sound!) at the bottom of the screen every once in a while is sufficient. Anything more ruins the viewing experience.
