Just when I thought I'd seen TV live trucks destroyed in every possible way, a CBS 58 photog submerges her van in Milwaukee's Big Muskego Lake. According to reports, the truck drove off a boat launch and about 150 yards out onto an iced over channel leading to the lake when the ice suddenly gave way. Yikes! The photog managed to escape unharmed, but no doubt she's weathering a storm of unwanted publicity after dipping her equipment into The Drink. Boy, have I been there! Which is why I'm sympathetic to this particular photog's fate and hope that her bosses will go easy on the ribbing and retaliation. After all, if you clamor on the edge of calamity for long enough, you're bound to get some on ya. Now DIVE! DIVE! DIVE!
