An alert reader (as funny writer Dave Barry always used to say about his contributers) sent me a link to this very funny story, the squabbling in the States over our Olympics after Fox’s always delightful Glenn Beck claimed on air that Vancouver lost $1 billion on them.
Guess no one told him they haven’t happened yet. Of course, we COULD lose a billion — who knows? — by the end, but there’s no final accounting yet.
This is what I love about contemporary media, not. Misinformation rules. I just hope I don’t have to keep explaining to people every time I go on vacation that we’re actually all fine here and haven’t had to sell our houses to Russian mafia members to help pay our part of the Olympic debt.
