Enough with the flu shot video

It's officially here and it's a bad one this year; Flu season has arrived.

We'll talk about how bad it is in the Fox Valley on the PhilCast today when he have a local expert on the subject on the show.

Meantime, one of my many pet peeves with TV news is the always-present video of people (and in some cases little kids screaming) getting a flu shot.

I know what a flu shot looks like.

I neither need nor want to repeatedly see people getting stuck with a big needle on the TV every time a station does a story about the flu season.

There, I got that off my chest.

And no, I never get a flu shot. And no, I'm not worried about a jinx on the subject now.
I bet you get a chuckle tonight when TV news does this story, complete with video of the dreaded needle being sunk into someone's flesh.
