CALDWELL, Idaho (KBOI) — According to a recent Washington Post story...Caldwell is almost the perfect place to host the Winter Olympics based three factors: elevation, population and topography.

Caldwell was on a list of four U.S. cities including Coeur D' Alene and two California cities, Beaumont and Yucaipa…that were fit to host the games based on the criteria. Caldwell residents were shocked to find out their city made the cut.

Case in point . . . Urban dictionary to understand what you were trying to say. (;

A gentleman from Couer d'Alene would have responded with a lengthy 4 paragraph comment spelling out the finer points of malicious slander and libel and would have attached his cease and desist letter from his attorney to any curator on this site.

While well stated, I've started warming the pop corn popper in anticipation of a forthcoming response. (!)
