Dear Planet Earth,
CNN has a live stream up of the latest crew to enter the no man’s land once known as the Republic of Uganda. The mysterious and catastrophic earthquake is causing the video to look interrupted and full of static, but they claim to be using a landlocked transmission source that will broadcast clearer than satellites. If the situation gets any tenser, they’ll have to bring out their real secret weapon, the last and only resource our modern news media has to deliver information and make lasting impacts on the world around us — Anderson Cooper.
Seriously though, this is as good an excuse as any to put off your English class projects and stay glued to your screens. The must-see disaster of 2011 is upon us, people. Okay, so I’m not making it sound as serious as it really is, but it’s hard to keep up a concerned, dignified composure all the time — just ask Anderson.
