Here We Go Again

This is twice, in how many days, that someone brings up the issue of how the Balloon TracKT is spelled. Didn't we go through this both here and in the newspapers within the last year or two? Heck, the Times- Standard even ran an online poll on the proper spelling of the tracKT.

Not pointing fingers, as I did my fair share of stirring the pot on the issue. I guess it does lead me to think, though, that maybe anybody who's anybody in Humboldt doesn't necessarily visit this blog. Then again, I suppose just because someone writes a letter to the editor doesn't automatically raise them to the level of being an anybody.

Fact is-if you want to name your blog Peter Pan's home for runaway boys its your prerogative Fred. It is not yours or the paper's place to name/rename someone elses property.

And yeah, who cares?

See, now if the CREG types are clever, they'll write up a song about it.

You say Balloon Track
and I say Balloon Tract

....

Let's call the whole thing off.

Can't fill it in. The only word that rhymes with Depo is Repo, and that's not even really a word.

Eric, you have something going... keep going with the song. I have discussed "tract" vs. "track" with friends many times.
