Where's My Gaff?

On most nights, the local tv newscasts does nothing for me. That's not for the lack of breaking local news stories, which is beyond the control of the newsrooms, nevertheless, in the absense of which, the local tv stations resort to national and world news filler material despite the fact that the national and world news follows the local news every evening and thereupon repeats the same story. There is the atmosphere so redolent of a plastic lei that premeates the local broadcasts. The faux localism that the newscasters exude would make a humuhumu nukunuku gag. That's our state fish, btw.
