Harts Pass No. 112

Mega-commercialism and the Olympics. Hand-in-hand since 1984 -- or at least that's when I'm led to believe that somebody REALLY started cashing in :) When you might be crossing a line by displaying the Olympic rings (freshly made no less) in your bakery window or other such grass roots celebratory efforts, then things have probably gone too far.

And please stop showing the professional athlete "Olympic Dream" commercials. THAT is never the story here people!

Crazy. Did you really get in trouble? Love the Olympics but I hear you...

Not to worry Craig. I was simply stretching the truth based on a comment from a former editor at the Methow Valley News. I WISH that folks at large were reading this enough to rifle someones feather's... but sadly 'tis not the case.

The bakery reference is true though :) Congrats on the recent picture/trade book news!
