Ali Velshi should stick to financial reporting because last night in Atlantic City in the heart of the storm he showed how little common sense he had.  He stood in the middle of a street (about 6 lanes) with the wind whipping him around and being blown into oncoming traffic.  His comment:

"We've done this before, and we know how to keep safe," he said about an hour later, adding that he wanted to show people how dangerous the situation was.
The Mayor of Atlantic City, Lorenzo Langford, told Velshi to get off the streets, saying that "self-preservation" was important.

This is the height of stupidity especially when they were warning people to evacuate and especially stay off the streets and then this fool goes out to play in the traffic.  

Yes, that is Velshi standing in the middle of the road under the red light.  Watch as he gets blown repeatedly into the oncoming traffic.

I did not transcribe this video because, well, you can just watch and see the stupidity of a reporter standing in the middle of a 6 lane street, being blown out in front of oncoming traffic and then making light of it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
