Opinion editorial by WBZ NewsRadio political analyst Jon Keller
BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — OK, so it’s going to be a hot weekend.
But that can’t be complaining I’m hearing in line at DD this morning?
I get it, these triple-digit temperatures we’re expecting the next few days are no joke for seniors, toddlers, pregnant women, and anyone who has to work outside.
Plus, just a wild guess, the AC might not prove reliable on the T today. \
Not a good day to get upclose and personal with your fellow straphanger.
But for the rest of us, complaining about the heat is going too far, even in a culture where whining and moaning are a sign of being at home.
We complain about everything we can think of, and are constantly on the lookout for new opportunities.
We complain about our teams when they are winning or losing. We complain about the traffic we create, the taxes we’re charged for the services we demand, and, always, the Registry.
But how can you complain about the heat wave when all during the long, cold, dark winter, which this time around ran from November through May, all we did was pray for weather like this?
Would we prefer 9/11 weather, dry ‘70s with just the right amount of breeze?
Of course we would, but is or is this not better than 22 degrees with black snow and black ice competing for space in your driveway?
You know the answer.
So when the office joker asks you today if it’s “hot enough for you,” give him a cold stare and say: “Yeah. It’s just perfect.”
