Default Pedestrians

I thought this was a cool article. A sport I have never heard anything about before.

https://www.atlasobscura.com/article...-pedestrianism

Wonder if we could bring it back today under the guise of "Walking With The Stars". Get 40 or 50 people from diverse backgrounds together (sports, show biz, politics, TV) and have a 6 day televised walk off. Whose with me in this? Looking for financial backers.

Check out the Bunyon Derby if you think this is interesting. Red Grange was involved as a promoter I believe.

The N162 set had pedestrians included.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
