Yes, Today Really Did Pick Steubenville as Its City of the Day

Every morning on The Today Show, weatherman Al Roker announces "Today's Pick City" — an honor which entails having a town's local weather read out loud on national television. Today's pick? Steubenville, Ohio, home to Fort Steuben and the biggest rape case of the past year! As Al Roker said, it's "a great town."

Too soon, Today? Too soon.

As someone from a city that was home to one of the more famous rape/murder criminals in Canada, I'd like to please urge people NOT to judge and entire effing city on a few people's horrendous acts. It's shameful enough it happened here, you don't need to throw the rest of us under that label.

I mean, it's not like they chose "JONESTOWN" as their city of the day.
