  1. I predict Mike Morgan will not get his meteorology degree, or or validate his AMS Seal Of Approval, but will get a new batch of red ties and a new suit.

  2. Ok, ok…I’ll get re-upped with the AMS for 2013. After all it IS the premier professional accreditation entity for meteorologists. You really should not slam them….I just became pre-occupied paying financial attention to other needs in raising a family. Re-upping will continue for 31 years my relationship with them. 2013 will be a good year…confident of that!!

    • All you really have to do is periodically send in a picture (preferably in focus) of Marla and your cool with everyone.

      • +100

        And Mike I give you lots of props for commenting and being a good sport. I admit I see you in a whole new light and I’ve got a lot of respect for how you have handled the dishing it out/taking the shots.

        • Oh the love now! Going to be cautiously optimistic there will be more of that, than hate…Marla had a Toga on…it was cute….don’t think she will ever bow to age, which will be fun, and possibly interesting!

        • Oh the love now! Going to be cautiously optimistic there will be more of that, than hate…Marla had a Toga on…it was cute….don’t think she will ever bow to age, which will be fun, and possibly interesting!
          I see Joleen almost nightly….we talked one time about sending TLO candid pics of her journalisming in action, but we keep getting sidetracked….

    • I agree the AMS does quite well in their mission of advancement of meteorology, but the broadcasters seal is only a small component of it. The seal is really used to generate membership revenue so they can finance their real mission. To get a seal, no formal completion of training is required (ie. no degree certificate), only a few lower level courses will fulfill it, or a distant learning correspondence course online. Video tapes are submitted, pay your membership, and you have the coveted seal. I believe some broadcasters display their seals as window dressing to hide their lack of completion of a formal meteorology program. In fact, many initially join, but quit paying their membership afterwords, yet still display their coveted seal to the public. As a result, any swinging dick with the internet who just sounds good can get the coveted AMS seal. Is that really a high standard? For a program that one claims is a “premier professional accreditation entity for meteorologists,” one can see how it is all just smoke & mirrors to the tv viewers.

      • “one can see how it is all just smoke & mirrors to the tv viewers” — You have just DEFINED television, my friend.

      • This also sums up mike morgans credibility:

        all work and no play makes mike a dull boy. all work and no play makes mike a dull boy. all work and no play makes mike a dull boy. all work and no play makes mike a dull boy. all work and no play makes mike a dull boy. all work and no play makes mike a dull boy.

        I predict Stephen King will write a sequel to The Shining – Ok, he really is!!

    • No, not really.

      She’s much more beautiful. I actually wasn’t a huge fan for a long time. Don’t get me wrong, she is very attractive on tv. I just didn’t get the fuss, especially around here.

      But a couple of weeks ago I was interviewed by her at the station. Got to meet her up close and personal. Very professional, personable and even better looking in person. I get the fuss now.

      • ‘fraid so, it was a sweltering July day in Bricktown…Steve had just walked a great distance after a “brick” interview. It looked like he had been in a “wet business shirt contest”…you get the picture?

        • Oh My, I admire your strength and courage for being willing to share, and I think you should change you moniker to “Iron Eyes Walker”

          PS:……this explains the 20XL business shirt I saw throwing itself in front of an 18 wheeler on the crosstown! Oh the Humanity………
