Byron Allen Buys Weather Channel

Did you know that former Comedian/host of "That's Incredible" Byron Allen was a multi-gizillionaire media mogul? Me neither, but he is. His company just bought the Weather Channel for $300 million.

This news shouldn't upset me, but it does.

Not that he bought the Weather Channel. I don't care about that. I care that he CAN buy the Weather Channel.

The talent-to-money ratio in this country is completely skewed. Yakov Smirnov is a gazillionaire too, thanks to his ownership of theaters in Branson Missouri. But unlike Byron Allen, at least Yakov had one funny joke.
