Scoffers of the New Metereology

In the May 10-11 WSJ, there was an obit of George Cressman, who inaugurated the practice (at the National Weather Service) in 1966 of using probabilistic forecasts. According to the story, a writer for the Christian Science Monitor ridiculed this newfangled approach:

"Tell me, every time there's a 50 percent chance of rain do I wear one rubber, and leave the other one home?"

Gene, didn't you raise similar sarcastic questions a few months ago on this blog? Oh wait, Catholics don't wear rubbers...

Ba-DUM. Thanks folks, I'm here through Tuesday. Please remember to tip your waitresses.
