There must be a more convenient way to get news, right Jethro?

Now there is a screenwriter after my heart. I like NCIS and irascible protagonist Mark Harmon as Senior Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, but that scene Tuesday night was a keeper.

The team was sitting at their desks tapping away at their computers and kibitzing.

 One time Mossad Officer Ziva David, played by Cote de Pablo, remarked, “There’s nothing good on the Internet anymore.”

 To which Sean Murray’s character of Special Agent Timothy McGee replied, “Yes, I think that Internet thing has just about run its course."

 David: “Up pop ads, video ads, I think this whole page may be an ad."

 The conversation devolves into the usual confusion by David over American colloquialisms, hair loss pills, men and women, Tweeting and other Internet sparked inanities.

 At which point McGee finds a story on a dead pilot and offers to e-mail it to David.

 “No more links,” David pleads. “I have spent my entire morning sifting through all of this nonsense looking for something that matters. How hard is it for someone to tell me the news and bring it to me?”

 “There must be a better way,” replies Michael Weatherly’s Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo character.

 On queue, Gibbs loudly slams down on the desk a copy of a newspaper. 

 The flag reads The Virginia-something or other. The least they could’ve done is use the real Virginian-Pilot and given the local paper a plug.
