A National Website Thinks This is the Best Thing About Idaho – They’re Clueless
I must admit that my jaw dropped when a saw a well-respected national website list what they thought the best thing about Idaho was. Seriously?
I normally like the stuff that Thrillist comes up with. They have some pretty clever and interesting lists they create. But, I have to take them to task over this one. Behold their list of the Best Things About All 50 States. For Idaho, it's Lake Coeur d'Alene.
I feel the need to explain myself. Obviously, Lake Coeur d'Alene is spectacular. I have no problem with their destination choice. It's their reason which left me questioning whether mankind can continue as a species. Check this Thrillist reasoning:
Might we recommend following up a day at the lake with a burger from the iconic Hudson's and, perchance, a sighting of OJ's nemesis Mark Fuhrman, who retired to the mountain town? If it's cold, he might have some gloves…
I'm gonna let you soak in the fact that possibly spotting Mark Fuhrman could be the best thing about this place in Idaho. I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and guess someone at Thrillist is trying to be funny. Nice attempt, but no.
I could argue about the Lake Coeur d'Alene part, too. Stanley? Hell's Canyon area? Heck, let Boise top another list. They're used to it. But, these type of lists are subjective. Different strokes for different folks.
But, Mark Fuhrman? Even Mark Fuhrman's mother doesn't talk about Mark Fuhrman anymore.
