RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
Congratulations to Asher for starting this thread. Before we go any further, please educate yourselves--if you're newbies to the cross-America thing--by reading BUNION DERBY:

At bare minimum, LR forumites can perform a public service by showing up to cheer on--or note the absence of--the runner in question. Come on, guys (and gals). This is what this community is her for.

As though they have anything to teach us about the blues!

Now this.

Come on. This is silly. Somebody please call up Dean Karnazes. Better yet: fly him in and have him dog this guy.
