Fox2Now's Accidental Poetry Memorialized in New Tumblr


Daily RFT has long been tickled at how KTVI (Channel 2) web stories capture the fragmented nature of human experience, as in this story that ran yesterday:

It took fire crews about two hours to knock out the flames at one of the sites this morning.  The flames destroying tractors, mowers and a dump truck. The Illinois Fire Marshal is now investigating and is calling them suspicious.

But we're not alone in our fandom. As first pointed out by our pals over at Punching Kitty, there's a gal named Erica Smith who has been snapping up the bright little verbal butterflies that flutter out of Fox2Now's Twitter account.

She calls her tumblr, "Fox2Now Poetry."

Here are a few of our favorite harvests:
