Fatuous question du jour

...courtesy of CBS News correspondent Omar Villafranca, reporting on a school bus which was side-swiped by a car and plunged nose-first off a 610 South Loop overpass onto the lower Telephone Road in Houston, Texas.

At a subsequent press conference, Nathan Graf, Trans­por­ta­tion General Manager for Houston Independent School District, fielded questions from reporters.

When his time came, Villafranca's big question was:

"Did the bus have any safety devices on it, like a roll bar or anything?"

Graf patiently explained that the school bus was con­structed with a crush-proof ceiling with thick padding.

Villafranca closed the segment with an irrelevant note about seat belts which students are not required to wear.
