CBS Is Taking Augusta By Storm

With the Masters just two days away, it's time to get in the swing of things, and by "swing of things," we mean looking like this.

We also mean CBS employees in Georgia for The Masters robbin' the place blind.

A freelance editor from Alabama who was hired by CBS to help cover the Masters golf tournament this week was one of three people arrested Monday and charged in a bank robbery. A man wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and an Atlanta Braves sun visor entered a Wachovia bank branch on Gordon Highway shortly after 9 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money. A red dye pack mixed in the money exploded in the parking lot.

This is yet another example of the media coming into a small sleepy town once a year and grabbing it by the throat. Jim Nantz will not stand for this sort of insubordination.
