Be careful what you wish for

One installment of The Weather's Channel's dreadfully bad "It Could Happen Tomorrow" series -- which imagined the worst-possible natural disasters in densely populated areas -- focused on the notion of a tornado tearing through downtown Dallas.

Computer animation showed high-rise buildings being damaged, windows being blown out and showering the streets below with dangerous spears of glass, cars getting tossed about on pedestrian-filled streets, and other such horrors.

Well, it did happen. Yesterday. Except it was in downtown Atlanta, home of -- wait for it now -- The Weather Channel.

The irony was too good to ignore.

Thankfully, by the way, there were no life-threatening injuries in the Friday night storm.
