Last week you published a "News Spot" on the upcoming Olympics and the competitors, namely Bruce the Great, that will be take place in the near future. You failed to mention how important his training is and how much he actually sacrifices so that he will be the athlete that wins. I felt that this was a lack of reporting on your part - please consider this as a future article as myself and I'm sure many other readers would be extremely interested.

Dear Want to Know More,
I will certainly take your suggestion under advisement; an expose on the athlete's training would make for a great article. In my defense our "News Spot" last week only served as a preliminary introduction and wasn't meant as the "end all". I appreciate your input and will try harder to up our standards.
