The Mark Reynolds Gerbil Urban Legend will live forever in the Tri-Cities. Myth Busters should devote a show to the plausibility of it even being possible.

When these threads began they were mostly about Smith and Williams, and how they gave each other dreamy eyes on the air. I didn't comment. I've always thought these stories were much ado about nothing. But in light of the recent revelation about Williams and his boyfriend, and realizing what I saw ocurring between Williams and Smith wasn't imagined.(Not that it makes any difference if two grown men, one of them married, are exceptionally happy with each other.) Now you bigots can go back to your trailer and your 8 kids and we'll get all lathered up about the weather and rendevous at the man cave later. News at 11. It's the Johnson City way.

Have you heard the Mark Reynold's rumor? They're like the story about "They sent divers to fix the Dam, they said there were catfish big as school busses".. I've heard that story all across the country about damn near every lake I've fished in. In JC it's "My (insert relative here) was working at JCMC the night he came in and had to have it removed."

Ill have you know I reserve my giggling for words like dooky, boogers, and hookywookydoodah..

If you've never heard the Mark Reynolds stories in the tri cities you're either new to the area or lived back in Stoney Creek too damn long..

Oh I've heard people like you rant about the story before, it was just as stupid and immature then as it is now. There have also been lots of stories about other things that used to go around that were bogus like the world is flat, the earth is the center of the universe, witches living in Salem, the holocaust never happening, etc. I don't see you on here trying to keep any of those things going.

You and folks like you choose to go on with promoting rumors and bs that are generally sexually oriented and have shock value(so you think)that appeal to the immature, fanatical, and homophobic types. The fact that you promote and find so humorous something so ridiculous perverse and stupid says more about you, your mentality, and the type of people you surround yourself with then it does about the person you're trying to berate. Put your big boy pants on and grow up dude.

You're an excitable little fella. You should read your post back to yourself a few times. You must be some sort of Topics Nostradamus of sorts. You seem to have channeled your inner Miss Cleo based on a simple comment posted on a meaningless thread. To assume you know me, or to be able to catagorize me based on my simple recollection of an ages old tri cities Urban Legend is comical as hell.

This whole story seems like a badly written soap opera or something Dr Phil's producers dreamed up. WJHL should contact the show. They could do a week of shows on these dysfunctional "professionals."

The promomotion intro: "A hillbilly weatherman, an alleged gay D.A.'s assistant, a jilted lover commits suicide after an eviction and domestic violence incident involving a medieval weapon. Stay tuned to learn the truth about the story that made national headlines on the next Dr Phil."

Other than Mr Taylor the only one I feel sorry for is Mrs. Smith. She thinks he keeps 8 by 10's of his colleagues over their headboard because he loves his work so much.

I was always a fan of Tim Cable. His segments were really interesting.

Yea guys- some of you people are missing the point.It is the media that points the fingers and reports the dirty laundry. Just doesn't seem right that that WJHL mess continues on. Maybe is I use the word "alleged" gerbil- would that make it all better? BTW I live in Starawberry Fields subdivision not a trailer.

God bless WJHL-TV. last night Mark Reynolds all but predicted-and all it did was rain-Many GAY men are DRAMA QUEENS :

A tsunami (plural: tsunamis or tsunami; from Japanese: &#27941;&#27874;, lit. "harbour wave";[1] English pronunciation:/su&#720; &#712;n&#593;&#720 ;mi/ soo-nah-mee or /tsu&#720;&#712;n& #593;&#720;mi/ tsoo-nah-mee[2]) is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, typically an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions (including detonations of underwater nuclear devices), landslides, glacier calvings, meteorite impacts and other disturbances above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami.[3]

Since when did the weather become more important than the news? When the weather department took over the TV station-that's when. I hope Mark doesn't see sports guy Kenny Hawkins BBC when he goes to pee in the WJHL bathroom.It will be raining black snakes.

Mark is a good guy, always friendly, and does a good job for WJHL. Live and let live. I bet people who talk the most have closets full of skeletons. Mark is clean, he works, and pays taxes. That is more than half of the so called men in our area can claim.
