1) Yesterday’s results

Today: Partly cloudy. High in the low 60s.
       Sometimes I wonder if the weather report is the only part of the
Daily Gazette that people actually read.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low in the mid 40s.
       Then I wonder if people read these witty little comments under
the forecasts, or if they only care about the numbers.

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy. High in the low 60s.
       I guess if you’re reading this, you care. Thanks.

and Asia as a result of infection from the Chernobyl virus, officials reported
