A high probability of stupidity

I was watching a report on the Weather Channel this morning. The anchor was displaying the front pages of newspapers in communities hit by yesterday's storms. One banner headline read, "Storm Strafes City." The anchor said, "I looked up the word 'strafe,' because I didn't know what it meant. It means to attack something with machine guns or cannons from low-flying airplanes."

I guess that it goes without saying that if you don't know the definition of "strafe," you probably don't know what "metaphor" means, either.

How can someone attend college for four years, obtain a degree in atmospheric science or meteorology, and not know what strafe means?
