Funny that you would say that Kip.
The easiest thing to do is be a bandwagon jumper and join in on the hate. Dr. Litton has been the single largest donor to my hometown race every year. Through his generosity we have been able to raise enough money to purchase land for a kids and family park. Many here are grateful to him an think you are being too harsh and have strung this ridiculousness out far too long. It really appears pretty creepy.
Everyone who hears the tale of Kip Litton ROFL and can't get enough of it. Are the people in your hometown that different? Doubt it.
