Go figure, haven't opened your rag in quite some time due to its dissapointing (SIC) content, but seeing as it was either The Source or People magazine, I opted for the former.

Wow! What a surprise! Right there in front of my eyes, a whole OUTDOORS section dedicated to some self-congratulating "writer" touting her experiences with spin class. Outdoors section...Spin class?

Now I'm sorry to hear about this shoulder issue, but really, a staff writer let alone your "editor " could not come up with anything but a wasted page on spinning? Doesn't she have any HARDCORE friends out there that have summited some formidable peak, only to later wrestle some wayward pronghorn and sleep inside its gutted carcass, Outdoors?!

Hell, raking leaves or covering her pipes to prevent freezing, something even remotely related to the Outdoors. Better bring ol' Woody back and his 80's Vuarnets - now that was some writing.

Editor's Note: We never considered dismissing our Outdoors columnist Pam Stevenson after she was HIT BY A CAR. While she has dedicated a couple of columns to recovery oriented themes, such as spin classes, she's continued to cover a breadth of outdoor subjects, including hiking, cross country skiing and mountain biking. We hadn't thought to add wild sheep skinning to her subjects, but we'll take that under consideration.
