Our ignorant newsies – Triple digits

We’re in the middle of a heat weave here in California. Almost every weather reporter has been talking about triple digits. The idiocy that I can’t stand is when they say – and most of them do – that “it’s going to be over triple digits tomorrow.” No, it’s not. Triple digits is the range 100 to 999. To be over triple digits it would have to be at least 1000 degrees. What they mean is it’s going to be over double digits, or it’s going to be in triple digits. They don’t know the difference between over and in. I think the concept is over their heads when it should be in.
