The Slice

I-90 closed

No, not here.

But a stretch near Lake Erie is covered with water.

Why? What did you think I meant?

This reminds me of something in one of Bob Newhart's shows — the one set in New England.

He was hosting a local TV program called “Vermont Today.” And the producer, in an effort to create some buzz, starting using insanely hyped promos.

One was “GM Cars Recalled.”

The story turned out to be some retired guys sitting around talking about old Chevrolets and Oldsmobiles.
