Oh, oh, oh!

Here at SooToday.com, we get so excited whenever big-city papers like The New York Times tell their readers why they ought to visit our naturally gifted area.

We confess to being a little baffled, however, when we noticed that the splendid story about Batchawana Bay ice-climbing in today's online edition of the Times was illustrated with a picture of a really cute couple enjoying Saline Beach in St. Barts down in the sun-soaked Caribbean.

Huh?

Personally, we think Shaun Parent from The North of Superior Climbing Company is every bit as gorgeous as that babe in the bikini and would have been a rather more appropriate image for a story about clambering around on frozen waterfalls.

Even if the venerable Times misspells his name "Shawn" at one place on the page.

But heck, we'd never think of quibbling over silly little details like that in a newspaper that's won 90 Pulitzer Prizes, when SooToday.com is still working on our first.

So far as we're concerned, the nice folk at the New York Times can write about our "remote, sparsely populated and relatively unexplored" Algoma wilderness any time they wish.

And hey, if travel editors everywhere start using pictures of St. Bart bikini-gals to illustrate their articles about Algoma, they could really goose up our midwinter tourist count!
