"I like world peace"

Did anyone else hear it? The street reporter, whose name escapes me right now, was talking to three police officers about their New Year's resolutions. The first officer spoke of his desire to loose weight. She responded, "Yea, loose weight," as she patted at his stomach.

The second officer intensely stated his resolution. "I'm going to pray for world peace." That was a I nice sentiment from one who see the peaceful-less side of the world so closely. And our reporter's wisest response was....

"I like world peace."

Come one now. What kind of response is that from a reporter? Can't ABC do better than that? "I like world peace." That isn't even the truth. At least, who could know if they like world peace? It has never been experience. "I like the thought of world peace." "I like the idea of praying for world peace." "World peace is something we all desire." Those could have been good responses. "I like world peace only shows that young reporters are either incompetent or it show that this young person has no concept of the true evil that runs wild in this world. - Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2006
