Really this headline is almost laughable like something you would see in the onion.. "Heaviest rains in a week" Really a whole week??? never mind last month almost the whole city was underwater, rivers overflowed and people lost their houses -- now we are having the heaviest rains this week a whole INCH! Skilling you and your copy editors should go get a job with the National Enquire and report the weather on the planets of the abonimable snowman and lockness monster.

My bet is that the copy editors were layed off, in favor of the cheaper help from the local community college.

Though maybe the Tribune could sell more copies with Bigfoot...or Nessie on the front page.

Why is the Chicago Tribune reporting this anyway? They don't know the difference between a Kansas flood and a duck pond. Kansas is always either 2 days from a flood or 2 days from a drought. I've lived here long enough to know that weather should only make news when it causes serious damage.
