No news is good news

It would be tough to be a newspaper journalist in Iceland:

On some days there's really just no news to report here. None. Zero. Zilch. But even if there's no news, there are still thousands of column inches to fill every single day, which means editors and journalists must get creative.

[. . .]

So on the days that there's not much going on in Iceland, the journalists resort to stories about farm animals. On the back page of Thursday's Morgunbladid was a picture of a cow. But this wasn't just any old, fat heffer, this was Obba, the most productive and efficient cow in all of Iceland, pumping out a whopping 12,206 kilos of milk during the 2007 milking year.

On the other hand, maybe it would be fun to have to be that creative. We'll never run out of farm animals to write about here.

Maybe this is Funny in Iceland? or Fort Wayne?

Yet in Fort Wayne, there is a flood, ice,
and extreme sub temps to report on. I must be missing the story. As If...get creative!
