Feeling the Heat in Kansas

Some are starting the emphasize the heat.  And they are at least acknowledging that it's really not so bad:  "...last month had been only the 26th hottest June in the past 117 years."   And while Kansas is looking pretty hot, it's often that way.  That's why it's the most irrigated state in the corn belt.  Every other corn belt state looks pretty mild and reasonably moist.  

They are forecasting a little 3-day heat wave over the next few days.  That's still a far, far cry from 1936.

So why do they have to bury reality way down on paragraph 15 or 20?

One worry about the premature, over-hyped drought stories is that when it really does get bad, everyone will yawn at the usual weather news drama.
