    The Bolt picture wasn't great, but not horrible either. I got distracted from the centerfold by the condition of my cover. The USPS here in San Diego decided that my address label was not sufficient, so ran the mag through a cancelling device, giving Gay some tats. Nice touch, guys :?

    The worst quality photo I can recall, by far. All kind of mottled and splotchy. Does not on the surface look to be a just-one-copy kind of problem.
    I have to agree- the face especially appears pixelated.



    :?

    Thanks, but the pixelation is less-than-optimal and we thought the printer was going to be able to do more to salvage it than what we got.

    New cover is on the front page, by the way, if somebody hadn't noticed.

    Having just gotten mine, I find the situation to be over-stated.

    a. he's going almost 30mph past the camera
    b. it's an 11x16.5 enlargement
    c. it's not grainy
    d. the pixelation is not that bad
    e. I love the expression and hand gesture

    ergo - I like it!

    I esp. liked the theme of the whole issue - HURDLES

    first we have TEN successive pix of hurdlers:
    Robles
    Trammell
    AJ
    Oliver
    Payne
    Richardson
    Lolo (four times!)

    later on Davis & Carter get in the game

    and then the back cover is of . . . hurdles!!!

    Oh, PUH-LEEZ, don't encourage him.
    Matt does not read, he only writes his delusional nonsense.

    It's probably hard to get a nice, clear picture of him running because he moves so fast.

    Elwood P. Dowd:" Harvey and I sit in the bars... have a drink or two... play the juke box. And soon the faces of all the other people they turn toward mine and they smile. And they're saying, "We don't know your name, mister, but you're a very nice fella." Harvey and I warm ourselves in all these golden moments. We've entered as strangers - soon we have friends. And they come over... and they sit with us... and they drink with us... and they talk to us. They tell about the big terrible things they've done and the big wonderful things they'll do. Their hopes, and their regrets, and their loves, and their hates. All very large, because nobody ever brings anything small into a bar. And then I introduce them to Harvey... and he's bigger and grander than anything they offer me. And when they leave, they leave impressed. The same people seldom come back; but that's envy, my dear. There's a little bit of envy in the best of us. "

    :wink:

    Right. And gh apparently wants to blame at least one of the messengers...making fun of the fact that my understanding of technology ceased with the telegraph and daguerreotype.
    Not at all! "making fun" of an amusing typo. The name Elwood P. Dowd doesn't ring a bell?
